Farm Activities for Children in Singapore (Part 2)

After the goat farm, we headed for the frog farm! Frankly, I did not even know that there were so many farms in the Lim Chu Kang Area.


The frog farm is a host to Bullfrogs, so they are definitely bigger than those you used to see in your garden.

This farm was definitely more organised than the 1st, as there was a conducted tour by the operators to educate us about the frogs.

At a charge of $2, the guide was informative and knowledgeable in her craft.

DSC_0052 She told us how to identify the frogs…the female frogs are actually bigger and the male frogs are the ones that croak!

These reasons are mainly for mating purposes as the female is always at the bottom, and hence they need to be able to handle the load.

We are then offered a chance to carry the load!

I was not keen to handle the slimy creature and neither were the kids!

One of our friends was quite bold, and she had no problem handling the frogs!

Personally, my favourite part of the tour, was when they deep-fried the frog legs for us to eat!

At $2 a stick, the frogs were delicious!


From the frog farm, we proceeded to Bollywood Veggies!


This place grows the most variety of fruits, vegetables, flowers and it is the largest producer of organic bananas and papayas in Singapore. They also specialise in fruit vegetables such as ladies fingers, long beans, cucumbers, bitter gourds.

They have every common vegetable that u can think of here – and there are supposed to be organic as well.

Lunch was also at their Poison Ivy Bistro, and everyone was hungry.


The food there is Super healthy, as it is supposed to be organic. Daddy enjoyed the deep fried nuggets and chicken wings more! :)

Overall, it was definitely an interesting place to visit, and definitely very different from Shopping in Singapore along Orchard Road.

We started our tours of the various locations at 10am, and when we finished lunch, it was already 2pm.

Originally, we were supposed to go to the fish farm next, but we were too tired by then and we headed home.

Parenting Tip – Do set up early, as the Lim Chu Kang area does seem to be hotter than the rest of Sunny Singapore.

Go with a group of friends as well! The extra pair of hands with the kids will be very much appreciated! DSC_0112
