No, there isn't a farm on the moon (yet, as far as I know), but it's certainly far out. Past the Chinese army barracks in Shek Kong, Yuen Long (which are a bit of a spectacle in themselves, though none of us dared to take photos!) is a dairy farm, where fresh milk is produced, right in Hong Kong. (Found thanks to @coffeemeow's tip). We didn't see any milking, but did spot some goats...

I have to thank my lucky stars that I met Eat Love Write's ever so clued in author, who brought me to ABC Kitchen, a French food stand in Sheung Wan's Queen St. Market. Prior to this I'd never even known this market existed, let alone that ex-chefs of M on the Fringe (now temporarily closed while they find a new location) had opened an eatery here.

Chua Lam, who said that his ideal restaurant would be one that served high quality fresh produce cooked simply, but expertly and without fuss - perfectly grilled steaks, skillful stir-fries, controlled pan sears etc., in a utilitarian environment of marble-topped tables (chosen for their easy-wipeness and durability rather than 'prestige' as a material - much like the marble-topped tables in kopitiams in Malaysia/Singapore), decent lighting and so on.
