Singapore's only goat farm, it has 1,000 goats of mixed breed, producing milk for sale. Milking is done in the mornings. The goat's milk is pasteurises, homogenised and bottled by machines before selling it directly to consumers. You can visit the farm and feed the goats.

    Many thanks to the organizers for this trip to the off beaten tracks of Singapore, letting us enjoy the natural greenery along the way and get in close with nature. Waking up early at 630am to travel all the way to CCK Mrt Station can be quite unattractive (for an easterner like me), not to mention that it is followed by a torturing 1 hour (estimated) journey (Bus: 975) to the Hay Dairies Goat Farm.

    Luckily for us, there are not much passengers at the bus-stops after the bus left the CCK town boundary, thus we are spared the long journey to Lim Chu Kang. Having the length of the journey cut by half, and with much help from the cool weather, the short trip to the Hay Dairies Goat Farm is relaxing indeed.

    With some luck, our timely arrival coincide with the milking session of the goats, where we get to see how goat milk are extracted to be bottled for our human consumption. Well, I really pitied the goats where they have to get their nipples "suck" everyday by machines and some of us wondered if the process is painful to the goats =p

    After we have seen enough of the milking session, the group proceed on a mini tour around the farm. Due to the recent H1N1 issues, visitors are no longer allowed to get into close proximity with the goats, so activities such as goat feeding and goat patting are now off the shelves. Due to the unbearable stench coming from the goat dungs around the farm, we quickly exited the tour and went to the counter to get some goat milk to drink.

    To minimise the unique "goatty" smell, I ordered the chocolate version of the milk bought at $2 for a 200ml bottle. The milk, to me, taste pretty diluted and the chocolaty favor is lacking. Given a choice, I think I would not have bought the goat milk again from this farm, unless they start giving me better quality milk. Overall, it was still a good unique experience, nontheless.

    Rate: 6/10

      Searching for Hay Dairies Goat Farm one Sunday afternoon was frustrating. We were outside Jurong West Police Station and we saw a sign to Hay Dairies. So we followed the sign and went 'eat wind'!

      Took us an hour to reach the farm and it was closing for the day! arghhhh....

      Undaunted, we went the following Sunday. We still missed the milking sessions. Bummer.

      Milking sessions last from 9am to 11am Milking demonstrations and briefings are held at 30 minute intervals during the following times: 9am, 9.30am, 10am & 10.30am.

      Educational Tour: $3.00/pax; 250-ml bottle of milk and souvenir

      The mother goats were kept separately from their kids and the billy goats. Visitors can buy a packet of dried grass (S$2) from the reception counter to feed the billy goats and kids. Kids enjoy feeding the goats.

      I don't enjoy drinking goat's milk even though I bought a bottle of chocolate flavoured one. Goat's milk is an alternative to those who are allergic to cow's milk. Thank goodness I'm not allergic to cow's milk. hehe....

      Be prepared for the unpleasant goaty smell though. hehe....

      The goat farm is just next to the Dragonfruit farm.
