Going Out

Farm Hopping around Lim Chu Kang Part 1

To continue on our farm hopping adventure, we decided to journey to the north-western side of Singapore – Lim Chu Kang – where there is a larger congregation of farms. After researching a little on the farms, we decided on a goat farm, a vegetable farm and a fish farm. Our first stop: Hay Diary.

Hay Dairy is the only goat farm in Singapore that produces fresh goat milk. They house close to a thousand goats for milking and the process can be viewed between  9:00am and about 10:30am.

    
We walked around (literally 1 round from the entrance) the farm, saw some goats from afar and touched a couple. It was quite a sensory experience as you can see, SMELL and touch the goats. Fresh goat’s milk can also be purchased on the farm itself. The goats certainly left an impression in C as she couldn’t bear to leave the farm. ‘Bye bye Goat. See you’, says C as we left.

  
  


An interesting section of the farm is the exhibits from Counting Sheep, Dreaming Goats Exhibition hosted at the Singapore Philatelic Museum last year. I am not sure how long they will be there but the information board certainly provides some educational nuggets of information, especially if you are on the free and easy tour.

For groups less than 20 people, you can embark on a free and easy tour around the farm premisses. Prior booking is not required. However for a group of 20 or more people, do make a prior booking for an educational farm tour. An entrance fee of S$3.21/pax regardless of age is chargeable for group booking.
