I just went there last saturday with kids/

It will be great for one day tour. We chose the bus ride $30 per head, took about 2 hours for the goat farm tour.

A lot of things are still under development.

It is big, not advisable to walk.

Quite good especially the milk feed, carry lamb to take picture, feed ostrich and goat. These are extra charge RM3 each time.

$30 per head seems quite expensive. Is it an organised group thingy? I was thinking of driving up there for a day trip actually. Would I be allowed to drive around the farm?

I think they don't allow us to drive inside the farm.

Sorry for my late reply.

It is RM30 per head. You are not allowed to drive in.

RM30 is only the basic entrance ticket with bus ride within the farm + tour guide. It will take approximately 2 hours.

For milk feed and grass feed, you need to pay separately at RM3 each.

During the 2 hours tour, the tour guide would explain and show around. You can carry lamb to take picture without charges.

You would get to visit goat farm, tea/veggie farm, passion fruit farm, ostrich station and mushroom farm (free small cup of sweet and sour mushroom, it is very nice). There is a playground behind for kids to play.

At the entrace, there are variety of food made by lamb: fried ice-cream and some lamb dishes.

There is a stall selling fruits/veggie.

Do check out the season for veggie and fruits. Otherwise it will be too boring if go at the wrong timing.

It is worth for a day tour or a night stay. Staying too long may be too boring.

It is much better than local goat farm.

Do not expect too much. It is quite fun for day trip. A lot of areas are still under development.

You have quite a number of choices :

1) Either SBS 160 or 170 from OPPOSITE Kranji Station or

2) Causeway Link CW1 from Kranji Station or

3) Causeway Link CW2 from Queen Street Terminnal or

4) SIN-JB Express from Queen Street Terminal or

5) SMRT 950 from Woodlands Regional Centre.

City Square is linked by long bridge from the new JB Check Point, don't even have to step onto Malaysian Roads, very safe.

Have fun!
