WHO we ARE
HOW IT ALL BEGAN
BoDen or MyFarm was created out of our desire to lead a new journey in our life in agriculture after retirement from our career. Fatimah and I have always been fascinated with the beauty and wonder of Nature and we spend most of our holidays either in Malaysia or overseas loitering in the forest, parks, gardens, farms and the country sides. These places were the source of inspiration to us to create BoDen where we can call it ours. When we designed the farm we have incorporated our intention that one day BoDen can be a learning place for those who love the natural system.
As the society is becoming more and more health conscious, Boden gives special emphasis in the production of healthy food. It started with goat as goat is the best source of protein with fat and calorie lower than chicken, then the stingless bees where the honey, propolis and pollen naturally contained high anti oxidant, anti bacterial and anti fungal, and the bio vegetable plot and the other products of the farm such as starfruit, banana and papaya, various types of herbs and flowers only used composted materials. Our basic concept of farming is to create the vertical loop where all the three major products of the farm, livestock, bees and the vegetation co exist and are interdependent within the farm ecology.
Our management focus can be summed up as " LESS FOR MORE" which translate into efficiency and quality. It has been our mission to continuously searching and developing a template of best practices of output optimisation within the natural system environment. For those who visit our farm should be able to take home some information with regard to nature, healthy food, healthy soil to produce a healthy plant and how to overcome the challenges of pest and diseases without polluting the environment.
Our journey can be long and challenging but a fulfilling one where we share our findings, knowledge and experiences with the society and we want BoDen as an operational farm be a place of enjoyment, engagement, and enlightenment.
