10 farm visits in Singapore with kids

Learn where food comes from, feed a goat, pet a rabbit or hang out with frogs! Honey Kids Asia has found 10 farm experiences in Singapore for a day in the countryside wit the kids. Growing up in urban Singapore, kids are likely to miss out on trips to the countryside and seeing real live farm animals! Kids should know where their food comes from, get into outdoor activities, see a more rustic side to Singapore and enjoy some lovely animal encounters. So they’ve searched beyond the skyscrapers to gather these fun farm visits where city kids can see vegetables grow, feed the animals and spend the day exploring the great outdoors!

1. Farmart Centre

Whack on your wellies and head north of the Little Red Dot to meet goats, frogs, rabbits, birds, tortoises and hamsters at Farmart Centre. Kiddos will love feeding the animals, taking a farm tour and learning about the different birds on the farm (be prepared for a ‘what came first: the chicken or the egg’ conversation) and even trying their small hands at a spot of prawn fishing. Get the warm and fuzzies over at the animal petting corner before checking out the farm shop for fresher than fresh produce. Entrance is free, folks!
Farmart Centre, weekdays 9am-1pm, weekends & public holidays 9am-6.30pm, school holidays 9am-4pm, 67 Sungei Tengah Road, Singapore 699008.

2. D’Kranji Farm Resort

While the words ‘farm stay’ may conjure up images of skipping through fields on your way to milk the cows in an endless stretch of Australia, the D’Kranji Farm resort still manages to do a pretty decent job of giving us a slice of greenery during an overnight stay in the Kranji countryside. Plus, there’s a spa. Say no more! So while you head off for a well-earned facial, pack the kids and dad off to master some prawn fishing skills, and then all meet at the on-site Swiftlet Garden Museum to learn about the birds responsible for Asian delicacy, bird’s nest soup. Accommodation is villa style and spot on for families (we are fancying the executive villa complete with jacuzzi and steam room!) so why not make a staycay in Singapore of it?
D’Kranji Farm Resort, open daily, 10 Neo Tiew Lane 2, Singapore 718813.

3. Jurong Frog Farm

The whole family will love this farm with a difference, where residents are rather green and rather slimy. At Jurong Frog Farm, join a family tour and learn all about these slippery, yet cool, creatures before petting, feeding and even taking a snap with Mr Toad and Mrs Frog. Kissing is not compulsory, and we do have it on good authority that, so far, none of the frogs have turned into a prince.
Jurong Frog Farm, open Sat, Sun and public holidays 9am-5.30pm, Tues-Fri appointment or tours only, 56 Lim Chu Kang Lane 6, Singapore 719164.

4. Bollywood Veggies

We love hitting a good farmers’ market with the kids (such a great way to teach little ones about different veggies, fruits and herbs), so we’re taking it up a notch and going straight to the source! Bollywood Veggies is famous for its farm-charm and family-friendly vibe. Go on an adventure into the Kranji countryside and join a free guided tour around the Food Museum and then fill your bags with healthy, organic produce in the farm shop. Enjoy a family meal at the Poison Ivy Bistro (which also happily caters to those with special dietary needs) and then wander through the beautiful lush surroundings. Carrot petting optional.
Bollywood Veggies, open Wed-Fri 8am – 5.30pm, Sat, Sun and Public Holidays 8am – 6.30pm, closed on Mon-Tue unless public holiday, 100 Neo Tiew Road, Singapore 719026.

5. Hay Dairies

Whilst most kiddos don’t give much thought as to where the milk in their cereal bowl comes from, essentially almost all will presume it comes from a cow. Goat’s milk, however, is considered by many to be a healthier choice, having a lower fat content, less additives and easier to digest for those with food intolerances. Head over to Hay Dairies, home to over 800 goats, and join a free farm tour, milk a goat or two yourself and get to know these full-of-character cuties before stocking up on the good stuff to bring home.
Hay Diaries, open daily except Tuesday, 9am-4pm, No. 3 Lim Chu Kang, Agrotech Park Lane 4, Singapore 718859.
