Did you know there is an Italian Organic dairy farm in Singapore? It’s TRUE!!! Well I tried to search for it on Monday. Vaguely remembered it to be located at Lim Chu Kang. Alas, just could not find it so to make the most of the cross country travel, we stopped by at Hay Dairies instead to see the cute goats.
TO MY HORROR, we are no longer allowed to feed or hug the goats!!!!!! I recall visiting twice previously. All we had to do was pay $2 for the goat feed, and then we are let loose amongst the pens. The goats are still within the pens but they stick their little heads out to grab at the goat feed. Apparently, AVA considers this to be a health hazard and has put in place a ban for the last THREE years! Seriously, my first thought was that we are just going way overboard with all these precautions. The lady manning the cashier ( I think she owns the place) nodded sadly at me in agreement. I still have the photo of myself feeding a goaty 5 years ago 🙁
Still, we can walk past the pens and wave madly at the goats. They really are smart creatures and will look at you to see what you are up to. In India and lots of other places, goats are sometimes treated as pets! I definitely want to have a pet goat when I grow up.
If you desperately need a dose of goat hugging, you can trying going to the LA Goat Farm in Kluang, Malaysia (approx 2 hrs away from Singapore)
Yes I know, I feel like that too sometimes. Stuck in a cage with no where else to go but to grit my teeth and not get shit upon.
Are you serious????
$2 per bottle of milk. Lots of people can’t stand the goaty taste. I think it’s just a mindset you need to get over. After half a cup, you’ll be downing the whole bottle and installing a goat in your house.
The long walk….
Hay Dairies is part of the Kranji Countryside. If you’ve never explored this wonderful part of Singapore, you’re really missing out!

i want to visit that italian dairy farm!!
Me too, but I don’t know when I’ll be able to find time to go all the way back to far flung Lim Chu Kang!
I’m going! I love goats. My Mom used to have pet goats when she lived in Mexico and she said they act like dogs once they get to know you.
Yes, it would be fun to go to Hays. Best to go during their milking hours of 9.30am – 11.30am I think. 🙂
I’ve been here and it was quite an experience. Couldn’t get used to the taste of the goat milk though…prefer cow’s milk.
But from your photos I am more enthralled by the pretty kitty than the goats. That was a really good shot and looks like she was posing for you.
Aha the kitty was sitting down and really didn’t want to get up so she had no choice but to look at me. 🙂
