Singapore is home to a variety of unconventional places, with surprises around each corner for the uninformed tourist. Jurong Frog Farm is one of them, with a number of fun-filled activities revolving around its central frog theme, from feeding frogs to eating frog meat.
Formerly situated at Jurong, this frog farm was later relocated to a 1.2-hectare farmland in Lim Chu Kang where it stands till date. It was founded by Wan Bock Thiaw in 1981 and has witnessed immense growth since then. With a staff of thirteen people, the Wan family breeds the American Bullfrog. After realizing that operating merely as a breeding farm would not cater to the growing demand for frog meat, Wan Bock Thiaw started importing bullfrogs from other places, mainly from Malaysia. On reaching the farm, you can request for a Show and Tell session by the Frogology Pte Ltd, which costs SGD 10 per person. This informative session is ideal if you wish to know about the farm's history, how it works, its objectives and so on. The person in charge of this session also takes time to enumerate the different parts of a frog along with details about its life-cycle. There is a small frog enclosure filled with shallow water where people can enter and try to scoop up frogs and release them right after. One can also purchase pellets to feed the adorable amphibians.
Apart from frog meat, Hashima and crocodile meat are also up for sale at the shop in this farm, being the only local manufacturer of Hashima with American Ginseng, and Dried-Snow Jelly. It also sells its amphibians to various supermarkets and restaurants across the city. At present, they have also opened an online store to expand their business and make the farm produce more accessible.
