Farmcity is a learning farm.
We use agriculture to nourish brains and bellies.
EVERY SATURDAY FROM 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM
Every Saturday morning, we take our visitors on a tour of Farmcity, sharing what we do, how we grow, and what we are all about. We never want income to be a barrier to learning more, so we conduct these tours on a “Pay-What-You-Wish" basis. This means exactly that - pay what you wish at the end of the tour, if you feel you’ve learnt something during your visit. You’ll be glad to know that your contributions enable us to continue selling our vegetables at cost price.
We are only able to host a limited number of people each Saturday, so we kindly ask that visitors make a booking before coming.
How to Book?
How We Grow?
All our crops are cultivated naturally, without any toxic agrichemicals. We grow them under the TropicBird - our proprietary greenhouse built for the tropics, as well as in raised bed plantations filled with nutrient-rich soil that is teeming with life. We strive to ensure our practices are working in cooperation with (and of benefit to) people and planet, often in direct contrast to the pollutive and exploitative nature of conventional agriculture. Join a tour to see it in action!
Where Are We Located?
Our flagship farm is located in Beau Plan, Mauritius.
At the round-about of Pamplemousses (from M2 highway), take exit called Bois Rouge.
Drive pass the village and sugarcane fields for about 2km - until you reach a fork and an asphalted road on your left.
Keep going pass the entrance of Centre Equestre. Turn left at crossroad.
Turn right at the first dirt road.
Other Programs We Run
Farmcity offers guided tours and workshops to enable anyone to experience modern farming first hand. We offer a range of themes, delivered on and off the farm, relating to the wider topic of agripreneurship and the future of food.
LEARNING JOURNEY SCHOOLS
The #Cultivate program is a 1.5hour program specially developed for primary and secondary level students. In this workshop, we introduce participants to Farmcity's farming model and engage their inner entrepreneur with a fair trade simulation. The goal is to have students leave with a a greater awareness of their role as changemakers in the greater food system. School visits can be conducted in groups of 30 at a time, and a maximum of two groups per day.
TEAM DISCOVERY CORPORATES
Fancy a change of scenery? Our experiential programs take teams and managers on a learning journey out of the office and ‘back to the land’. Exposure to nature has been linked to better moods, higher job satisfaction, and more commitment to their employer. Speak with us today to tailor an activity that best suit your employee needs.
HOLIDAY PROGRAM 6-10 YEARS
#MunchBunch is a holiday program that takes place on a working farm. We introduce children to sustainable agriculture through storytelling, experimentation, observation and adventurous play.
AGRIPRENEURSHIP 101 10-15 YEARS
Farmcity's Agripreneurship 101 is an afterschool program aimed at cultivating an entrepreneurial mindset among junior youths aged 10-15. Using the future of food as a premise, we invite students to explore, invent and innovate out-of-this-world solutions to some of the challenges around the future of food. They will learn to problem solve, prototype and pitch their ideas effectively, some of the essential skills required for the economy of the future.
