What if we told you that there are farms in Singapore? And what if we told you that they’re open to the public? Yes, this news might come as a shock to many people. 🤯

01 • Hay Dairies

Goats. That’s what Hay Dairies is all about. This farm boasts more than 800 goats with a breeding origin all the way from Minnesota in the United States.

So, don’t be surprised when you’re greeted by the bleating of goats as the day begins on the farm. If you’re early and have luck on your side, you’ll even get to see the goats being milked.

What’s more, you can also get up close and personal to pet them and feed them some hay. Since they’re sociable animals, they’ll surely appreciate your company.

Be sure to buy the milk produced at the farm on your way out. Sure, you can get it delivered to your doorstep, but why skimp on the freshness?

📍 Address: 3 Lim Chu Kang Lane 4, Singapore 718859
📞 Phone: 6792 0931
Opening hours: Daily except Tuesdays, 9am – 4pm
💲 Price: Free for less than 10 pax | $8.64 to $16.20 for groups of 10 pax onwards, depending on package chosen

02 • Viknesh Dairy Farm

Viknesh Dairy Farm is known for its rich and creamy cow’s milk. It’s tucked away in a rather ulu location, so it might be a bit of a struggle to find it. But if you’re patient and follow the directions, you’ll find that the farm doesn’t disappoint.

The thing we love about this place is that you’re allowed to roam around the farm completely free of charge. It’s the perfect opportunity to go at your own pace and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere. We also love how the cows are just standing around in their pens enjoying life.

Feeding the cows is possible too, for just $10 — we think this is a great deal since entry to the farm is completely free. And like goats, cows are pretty sociable too, so don’t forget to reply if they moo at you like they’re trying to strike up a conversation.

Wrap up this memoorable tour by purchasing their homemade dairy products. 🐄

It’s hard to come across people who aren’t fascinated by fish. Maybe it’s the bright colours, the quirks and antics, or just the thrill or curiosity of seeing an underwater ecosystem in action. Qian Hu Fish Farm takes the concept of an aquarium and expertly fuses it with a fish farm.

This place offers longkang fishing so you can re-enact and reminisce about your childhood, and bond with your kids over yesteryear activities.

Not only that, there’s also a fish spa, where you can relax while fish nibble off any impurities — leaving you feeling refreshed and with much cleaner and softer feet.

Aquarium lovers should absolutely check out Qian Hu’s wide range of fish species like crabs, shrimp, lobsters, and snails. It might be time to create your own underwater world if you’ve been planning to do so for a while.
