I read about this place on several mummies’ blogs sometime back and made mental notes to make a visit one day. Just before the school holidays, Yan Yan came home with a note that the kindy will be organizing a trip there after the holidays for the 3- and 4-years old. I figured that it would be more enjoyable for her and her jie-jie if I were to take them there, instead of jostling with 50-60 other children during the field trip.
So off we went last Thursday. It’s not difficult to find except that I missed the exit along the LDP and had to make some turns to get back on track. The farm is located near Giant Seri Kembangan. We reached there at about 4pm, just two hours before closing time, but the ladies at the ticket counter assured us that two hours is sufficient to cover the whole farm.
We went in just as the Animal Show was ending so we didn’t manage to catch it. The next shows were supposed to be Fennex Fox Feeding followed by Pelican Feeding but there was no sign of the ranger at show time so we decided to go on our merry way instead of wasting time waiting.

It was a great two hours spent at the farm - the farm was clean, well maintained, and the keepers were friendly and accommodating. I wouldn’t hesitate making another trip in the future. Hopefully the owner will keep up the good work in maintaining the farm.
