Located at 3 Lim Chu Kang Lane 4, Hay Dairies is the one and only goat farm in Singapore. It has been around since 1988, and I remembered a school excursion there when I was young!
And so I have been wanting to bring baby E there. The long weekend was the perfect chance and off we go!
The farm is open to visitors daily (except Tuesday, unless it is a public holiday) from 9am-4pm. If you want to catch them milking the goats, you should be there from 9am-10.30am. We reached just before 10.30am and here’s what we caught:
But now due to AVA regulations, we were not allow to feed nor touch the goats. And milking is done at a distance away where the visitors will stand at a platform with rails.
Not being able to be up-close and personal with the goats seems boring to baby E so we were soon on our way to where the goats stay in.
The whole place is rather clean and orderly and they are probably well-fed and treated well. But seeing all the goats all caged up, doesn’t makes me feel good. And again, the distance made it boring for baby E too. Until we walked towards the baby goats.
We walked around the whole place in probably 15mins, with 10mins stopping by the baby goats. It’s not a huge place and frankly, if one don’t drive, it’s not worth taking a cab down.
And of course, a trip here without tasting their goat milk is a wasted trip!
We brought the original and chocolate flavour as both me and the daddy are not huge fans of milk. But that was a mistake because obviously baby E will want the chocolate milk too instead of the boring old milk! It tasted better than I remembered. 😄

After that, we cruised around and found a Crab Farm! Fresh and cheap crabs? Yes, please!
The whole place looks nothing like from Singapore. And the tanks were mostly empty when we stepped in. The uncle there said, due to the long weekends, most of the crabs were sold! Still, the uncle found two and we quickly grabbed them at S$16! We have no idea how much they weight but S$16 for two crabs seems like an awesome deal! The uncle were very friendly and taught us how to prepare the crab for cooking. So fresh, you can just steam them.

Afterward we made a pit stop at Bistro Gardenasia.
It’s a pleasant pit stop, with resort-like ambience and cooling interior. Price is reasonable and portion are ok too. Taste wise, I thought the pasta from the other table looked good but we didn’t order that. Instead we got lamb ribs and ribeye steak.
Lamb was tender but the steak was too tough although I ordered medium-rare, it was closer to medium/medium-well. Salad was good, generous portion of fresh arugula leaves, pine seeds and orange slices. They offer farmstay as well, can check out their website for more information.
And this ended our Nature outing for the day.
