So pull on your wellies and head on down to these top farms for kids in Singapore!
18 best family-friendly farms to visit in Singapore… and beyond!
1. Blue Aqua Shrimp Farm
If you’re up for something fishy and fun, check out this sustainable shrimp farm right in our backyard. Bring the whole gang, and you can dive into the shrimp world and more. The cool thing is you’ll spot all kinds of shrimp, from tigers to whites. Plus, you can sneak a peek at the hatcheries and the tech stuff that keeps the farm buzzing round the clock.

2. Kranji Sanctuary Resort
The term ‘farm stay’ might make you envision frolicking through fields to milk cows. But at this resort the story may be slightly different. Gallop Kranji Farm Resort does a commendable job of offering a taste of nature during an overnight stay in the Kranji countryside. Nestled on a working farm, you can enjoy guided farm tours while also having the option of luxurious accommodations, making it a perfect choice for a staycation in Singapore.
Kranji Sanctuary Resort, 10 Neo Tiew Lane 2, Singapore 718813
3. The Live Turtle and Tortoise Museum of Singapore
Turtle lovers, unite! Here’s your chance to take a peek and feed our hard and soft-shelled friends at The Live Turtle and Tortoise Museum of Singapore. It’s home to turtles and tortoises, with some of them roaming freely through the park. If you’re lucky, you can catch mummy turtles giving birth too!
The Live Turtle and Tortoise Museum of Singapore, 81 Lorong Chencharu, #01-16, Singapore 769198 (closed on Tuesdays)
4. Hay Dairies
While most kiddos don’t give much thought to where the milk in their cereal bowl comes from, essentially, almost all will presume it comes from a cow. Goat’s milk, however, is considered by many to be a healthier choice. Head over to Hay Dairies – home to more than 800 goats – and get the inside scoop! Usually, you can join a free farm tour, milk a goat or two yourself and get to know these full-of-character cuties before stocking up on the good stuff to bring home!
Hay Dairies, 3 Lim Chu Kang Lane 4, Singapore 718859
5. Qian Hu Fish Farm
You don’t need to head to the aquarium to get up close with Nemo and friends. Head on over to Qian Hu Fish Farm for a date with Dory. There’s a whole host of attractions on offer, from fun fish tours to kid-friendly workshops. You can even introduce the littlies to traditional kampong life and have a go at longkang fishing. Also, fish spa, anyone? After the activity extravaganza, refuel at the onsite cafe. And don’t worry, this farm is all about ornamental fish, so you can reassure the kids. The difficulty will be coming home without one…
Qian Hu Fish Farm, No 71 Jalan Lekar, Singapore 698950
6. Bee Amazed Garden
When else can you tell people that you’ve interacted with bees and not gotten stung? At Bee Amazed Garden, you’ll get to learn all about the bees (no, not that one) – from basic beekeeping lessons to honey tasting, as well as a visit to the beehives observatory. There are also various educational programmes that you can take part in if you’re interested to dive further into the amazing life of bees!
Bee Amazed Garden, University of Social Sciences, 463 Clementi Road Singapore 599494
7. Nippon Koi Farm
The largest koi farm in Singapore, award-winning Nippon Koi Farm, houses exclusively-bred koi, which are directly handpicked and imported from Japan. Take a walk around the area and let your kids admire the beautiful koi on display; we reckon the littlies will be fascinated by them! The farm also features the country’s first large-scale aquaponics farm, which breeds and cultivates food fish.
Nippon Koi Farm, 51 Jalan Lekar, Singapore 698946
8. Singapore Zoo
Yes, we know that Singapore Zoo isn’t technically one of the farms in Singapore, but did you know it has an animal petting corner? It’s full of farm animals, including ponies, falabellas, rabbits, guinea pigs, pigs and goats. Head over to Kidzworld at Singapore Zoo and join a free keeper encounter session where wannabe farmers can cuddle a bunny, feed a goat and learn the difference between those ponies and falabellas. For the year of the rabbit, look forward to making many new bunny buddies too. Here’s to a hoppy time at the zoo!
Singapore Zoo, 80 Mandai Lake Road, Singapore 729826
9. UK Agro Farm (Malaysia)
Yes, we’re talking farms for kids in Singapore… but this one is close enough to be worthy of inclusion. The UK Agro Farm in Malaysia is a fantastic family trip from Singapore. It’s a real working sheep and goat farm with lots of cute animals, guided tours, and milking sheds. You can also enjoy a mini zoo with peacocks, hedgehogs, and more. Don’t miss Jakun Village for cultural experiences like blow piping and treehouse climbing. Consider staying overnight in the family farm’s villas or dorms to make the most of the adventure.

10. Open Farm Community
If you’re looking for a farm-tastic experience that goes beyond the vegetable patch, this Dempsey hotspot is the place to be. Not only can you explore the rustic on-site farm, but you can also savour the fresh harvests in farm-to-table experiences at the adjacent farm-style restaurant. We’ve personally enjoyed their offerings and can vouch for the flavours. Plus, to add to the entertainment, little ones can head to the nearby playground. It’s a win-win for everyone!
Open Farm Community, 130E Minden Rd, Singapore 248819
11. Urban Farm @ Funan
Check out this super cool farm right in the heart of our city, and guess what? It’s a breeze to get there via public transport. What’s even more unexpected is that it’s perched on top of the Funan retail mall. The rooftop hosts a full-fledged food garden that’s open for everyone to explore. You can get up close and personal with around fifty different types of edible plants. And the best part? You can even taste the fresh produce at the Japanese restaurant Noka, right next door, for a farm-to-table experience like no other!
Urban Farm @ Funan, 107 North Bridge Rd, Singapore 179105
12. City Sprouts
Nestled in Redhill’s heartland, City Sprouts at the former Henderson Secondary School offers a taste of farm life right in your neighborhood. It brings together gardening enthusiasts, agri-preneurs, agrifood and agritech partners, and the local community to explore agriculture and food. Check their website for family-friendly workshops like “Little Farm Explorers” and “Home Composting for Beginners.” They also offer guided tours for an in-depth look at their urban farming project.
City Sprouts, 102 Henderson Road, Singapore 159562
13. Edible Garden City
This little slice of green oasis was previously a dilapidated prison until the lovely people at Edible Garden City got their hands on it. As a collective of farmers, Citizen Farm is all about bringing agriculture and the community together in a sustainable way. Their farm tours and workshops (suitable from three years old onwards) are a great day out for the fam. As well as getting to explore (after a cup of fresh farm-brewed tea), kiddos can become little gardeners and get busy planting their favourite seeds. This is for keeps so they can kickstart their own edible garden at home too!
Edible Garden City, 60 Jalan Penjara, Singapore 149375
14. The Sundowner
On top of a cool old shophouse in Siglap, you’ve got The Sundowner, a nature-themed spot. Kids can check out the urban farm, hang with rescued bees (in bee suits, of course!), and even chill with some free-roaming chickens. There are fun workshops like paper marbling and magic tricks too. And for the grown-ups, hit the rooftop bar, catch a movie, or get creative with cocktails and pizza. All while the sun’s bids a colourful goodbye in the sky!
The Sundowner, 705A East Coast Road, Singapore 459062, The farm is due to reopen mid September after a swanky revamp
15. Kin Yan Farm
Although there are no animals roaming the paddocks at Kin Yan Farm, we still think it’s worth having on your list for a taste of the exotic. The littlies will love exploring the Cactus and Aloe Vera farm, and don’t miss the mushroom section – they might look a bit different to those found on the supermarket shelves! Don’t worry; there’s something for the Mums and Dads too. Recharge with a wheatgrass shot freshly grown in a field nearby.
Kin Yan Farm, 220 Neo Tiew Crescent, Singapore 718830 (Farm tours available on request. Call in advance to enquire as minimum group sizes do apply.)
If you want to make a weekend of it, then book a farm stay at Gardenasia in the idyllic Kranji countryside. These colonial-style villas are the perfect family escape from the hustle and bustle of the daily grind. Plus, there’s a pool! You’ll also get breakfast included, as well as dining discounts at the in-house Bistro restaurant for a delicious farm-to-fork experience. What’s more, this is a prime location for checking out the farms nearby, with complimentary tickets for the Kranji Bus Express. Get farm-hopping!
Gardenasia, 240 Neo Tiew Crescent, Singapore 718898
17. Kok Fah Technology Farm
Want the kids to understand where their veggies come from? Look no further than Kok Fah Technology Farm, which grows every green vegetable you can think of (as well as the ones you can’t!). It’s not any old farm, either. There are some serious greenhouses to explore, and the kids can get stuck in planting their own mini veggie farm or making a take-home terrarium. If you time your visit with a weekend, there’s even a market to explore so you can stock up on all that green goodness (and hopefully convert the kids).
Kok Fah Technology Farm, 18 Sungei Tengah Road, Singapore 698974 (Farm tours must be booked in advance)
18. Bollywood Veggies
We love hitting a good farmers’ market with the kids (such a great way to teach little ones about different veggies, fruits and herbs), so we’re taking it up a notch and going straight to the source. Bollywood Veggies is one of our fave farms in Singapore, and it’s a great place to take the kids. Go on an adventure into the Kranji countryside and join a free guided tour around the Food Museum before filling your bags with healthy, organic produce from the farm shop. Enjoy a family meal at the Poison Ivy Bistro (which also happily caters to those with special dietary needs) and then wander through the beautiful lush surroundings.
Bollywood Veggies, 100 Neo Tiew Road, Singapore 719026
See you at Singapore’s best farms soon, folks!
