Having fresh organic produce delivered to your door may seem like a luxury, but when you live in Beijing, where food scandals and general unhealthiness are facts of life, you may find yourself reconsidering, especially when there are plenty of affordable options right in your backyard. Here we present five organic farms that pride themselves on not only producing safe, untainted vegetables but also delivering them right to you and your comfortable urban living arrangement.

1) Beijing Organic and Beyond CorporationView In Map
Beijing Organic and Beyond Corporation (BOBC) is one of the biggest organic farm operations in China, with farms in seven provinces and over 60,000 delivery customers in Beijing alone, offering a wide variety of organic fruit, vegetables, grains, and hairy lake crabs (if you’re into that kind of thing). Some of the most popular delivery options are gift bags of mixed grain (10 kinds for 180 RMB), mixed seasonal vegetables (8-12 kinds for 260 RMB), assorted mushrooms (378 RMB), and assorted nuts (298 RMB) (all members’ prices). Don’t miss their organic gift and membership card sets (click “Shop Online” then “gift card” or “membership card”). BOBC also offers (and encourages) farm visits; contact their senior manager Chengjie Pan (panchengjie@organicandbeyond.cn) for more information.

2) Sanfendi Organic FarmView In Map
Sanfendi offers a variety of organic vegetables, eggs, poultry, and other fresh goods through their website.

3) Green Cow Organic Farm View In Map
Green Cow is a small organic farm with a big community interest: their 70 chickens, seven cows, six geese, and one pig produce all the manure needed to grow more than 25 types of fruit and vegetables and sell them to local restaurants and markets. And while they don’t deliver to just anyone, for 300 RMB a week plus a little elbow grease (that’s right, you can work here!), you can receive cases of your own seasonal organic vegetables. The farm also hosts several community activities throughout the year, including the very popular Green Cow Harvest Festival, a perennial kid favorite.
