Gary Sing/S. Singh
The story first appeared in New York Times in 2002 about Okara King, Philanthropist, Harbhajan Singh Samra and recently it was published under the heading of “ Changes in LA” on the front page of Produce News paper from New York which cover the fresh produce around the Globe since 1897.
Joel Kotkin of New York Times said, “His success reflects a broader reality in the nation's produce market. As ethnic population — and interest in ethnic foods — grow across the country, so do the opportunities for entrepreneurs like Mr. Singh.” Seeing Samra’s success in growing and marketing ethnic vegetables, some farmers have attempted to imitate but so far they have failed to match Samra’s product quality. The "king of okra" still reins and hopes to further enlarge his kingdom and expand to meet the increasing demand for quality Indian vegetables. He is specializes in growing Indian vegetables such as okra, mooli, tinda, bitter melon, Indian eggplant, methi, etc. at his 300 acre farm, near INDIO, Palm Springs, California'
Samra, Punjab Farm sells all vegetables to Indian, Pakistani and Bangladeshi and ships to all major cities of USA and Canada
