~ Kranji Heritage Trail - Hay Dairies ~

After our morning walk at Sungei Buloh, we drove down to the Hay Dairies goat farm. Hay Dairies is open to public so families can come down and visit between 9am to 4pm.

It was milking time when we arrived. We stood at the elevated viewing bay and observed how the milking process was conducted. The goats were being led into the milking area in a neat row where they will have their 'breakfast' as they are being milked. The milking machine was attached to the goat's teat, and very soon, fresh milk started flowing through the tube and into the storage tank.

According to AVA regulation, public is no longer allowed to touch or feed the goats. Hence, we took a peek at these mix breed in their resting area instead. 

Some were resting, some were quenching their thirst and some were staring back at us. :)

We can't leave Hay Dairies without buying the goat milk which comes in original or chocolate flavour. A 200ml bottle cost SGD$2 nett while 800ml (Original flavour only) costs SGD$7. After trying both flavour, Denver & Gladys prefer the chocolate milk.

Goat milk is very nutritious and it is known to be more easily digestible compared to cow milk. Many families made the trip down to buy bottles of goat milk and bring back home.
Thumbs up!

Hi Henry,
