About us

Leisa Tyler was originally a travel and food journalist and Ewout Kemner was a Dutch physicist specialising in neutron scattering.

Appalled at the sheer volume of herbs and vegetables flown into Singapore from Europe and Australia, in 2011 they decided to try and grow European vegetables in Malaysia’s cold climate central highlands.

With the support of Fung Chee Siang, a Malaysian organic farmer and owner of Hatiku, Loh Lik Peng, a Singaporean restauranteur owner of the Unlisted Collection, and chefs Anthony Yeoh and Dave Pynt, the team spent 18 months in research and development; trialling varieties to see what would grow in Malaysia’s soil and through the monsoons, then packing and shipping produce.

Weeds & More now work with five farms producing around 100 different varieties of herbs, fruit, vegetable, edible flowers and garnish products for restaurants, hotels and specialty grocers in Singapore and Malaysia.
