I’ve always envied the lush greeneries and countryside vibes that other countries offer, unlike Singapore being just a concrete jungle – all the housing and commercial projects everywhere. In fact, Singapore do have a couple of farms, located mainly in the North. We’ve spent a weekend checking them out and here’s our top 3 favourites during our farm hopping adventure!
I’ve also included the price of the activities as well as the opening hours… you’re welcome!
1. Hay Dairies
The ONLY goat farm left in Singapore, Hay Dairies is definitely one of the more interesting places that I’ve visited this year. Don’t forget to catch goat milking from 9.00am to 10.30 am daily – an added incentive for you to leave your bed early.
Farm educational tours are available as well – no prior booking required. You can also complete your local mini farming experience with goat feeding!
Opening hours: From 9am to 4pm daily (closed every Tuesday)
Address: 3 Lim Chu Kang Lane 4
Goat feeding: $5 per packet of Alfalfa hay
2. Jurong Frog Farm
Instead of seeing the skinned frog legs on porridge, watch live frogs pounce blindly towards their feed in their enclosures. You can even opt to catch frogs and tadpoles in Jurong Frog Farm, or simply stop over for a meal – freshly made frog delicacies.
Opening hours: 9am to 5.30pm on weekends and PH
Address: 56 Lim Chu Kang Lane 6
Frog feeding: $2 per container of frog feed
Frog catching: $6 for 30 minutes of croacking fun
3. Farmart Centre
Probably one of the perfect places to stop over for lunch during your farm hopping adventures, Farmart Centre offers both the opportunity to pet animals as well as to fill your stomachs. They also have a section for prawning if you wish to catch your own food!
Deeper inside Farmart, there are small enclosures (Animal Corner) with a little of everything – catfishes, domestic animals, goats, etc. Just in case you wish to only visit one place, Farmart is truly the place to go. It is extremely child safe too and there were many young children visiting the Animal Corner on a school excursion when we visited.
Opening hours: 9am – 1pm on weekdays; 9am – 6.30pm on weekends and PH
Address: 67 Sungei Tengah Road
Entrance: free (unless you’re driving)
Animal feeding: $5 per basket of a variety of food for each animal
