7 Animal and Reptile Farms to Visit in Singapore
Get in touch with nature by visiting a farm in Singapore! Over the decade, Singapore has actually see an increase in both urban farms as well as leisure farms. City farms are agricultural plots in urban areas, which involve people working with animals and plants to produce food. City farms are usually community-run gardens which aim to improve community relationships and offer an awareness of agriculture and farming to people who live in urbanised areas. While urban farms are designed mainly for agricultural purposes, there are leisure farms that are either fully or partially designed for parents and kids to visit. For these farms, you can get to understand farming practices, and not only enjoy the plants and vegetables but also the farm animals. Visit these farms in Singapore for fresh air, friendly animals and wholesome food! Brought to you by Tropika Club.
Hay Dairies Goat Farm
Hay Dairies, located at Lim Chu Kang Agrotech Park, is the only goat farm you can find in Singapore and has been open since 1988. Open from 9am to 4pm daily except Tuesdays, you can try to arrive early for the guided tour which is offered free. During this guided tour, you can view the goat milking sessions. On average, each goat produces around 3 litres of milk a day only.You can also walk around the farm leisurely and interact with the goats by petting or even feeding them. The goats are extremely docile and friendly. Goats are by nature sociable, amicable and curious animals and living in such familiar groups help them to milk more consistently throughout the year. When kept in shelter, the goats are also protected from any dangers or health hazards relating to soil borne diseases. It will be easier for the farmers to control their diet and ensure it is fibre-rich, nutritionally balanced for good quality milk.

I have also read about the debate between A1 and A2 milk.You can visit the farm and see the cows, but the highlight here would likely be their freshly-squeezed milk and their fresh ice cream, retailing at $3.50 a tub and comes in three lovely flavours (dark chocolate, salted caramel and original flavour).
