Hay Dairies Farm, Singapore Overview

Get your fix of goat milk at Hay Dairies Goat Farm, the only surviving goat farm of Singapore. Established as a farm solely for goats in 1988, there are over 800 goats here, a mix of pure-breeds and mixed breeds with their heritage being traced back to Minnesota in the USA. Come witness and explore the source of the goat milk that is supplied to the whole of Singapore.

If you can stomach the strong smell of an animal farm, the Hay Dairies Goat Farm will not be a disappointing trip. Located in a remote area of western Singapore, this farm serves as the perfect spot for one to experience various facets of rearing goats, from milking to feeding to interacting with these adorable creatures. One can also learn the nuances of producing the bottled goat milk found in store outlets across Singapore. As goat milk is a healthy beverage and a good alternative to breast milk, its importance may be better understood during a visit to this unique farm. Alfalfa hay, a GMO-free feed high in proteins, may be purchased for a nominal charge of SGD 5, which children and adults can feed to the goats as they bond with them. Another reason to visit this farm is to indulge in the road trip that leads here, dotted with tall trees and lush greenery devoid of concrete buildings, a rare sight of the gorgeous landscape in an otherwise urbanised Singapore.

History of the Hay Dairies Farm

The Hay Dairies Goat Farm was established by Hay Yak Tang in the early 20th century, a 16-acre plantation from where he reared ducks, chickens and pigs. By the 1970s, he switched to pig farming, accumulating around 20,000 pigs and 30 workers within the next ten years to become one of the largest suppliers of pork to Singapore. In the 80s, pig-farming was slowly phased out as goat farming started to settle in as a suitable alternative, and by 1988, the Hay Dairies Goat Farm was born, going down in history as Singapore’s only goat farm.
