A Visit to the Saanen Dairy Goat Farm

This weekend, the Yeaps, the Kams & the Lims, planned a family outing to the Saanen Dairy Goat Farm, Penang. The farm is open everyday from 10am-5pm. Admission is FREE.
The Farm provided us with grass to feed the goats, so, No, we don't have to bring our own grass. *in case you are wondering*

Lucas was really excited to visit the farm, in the morning, he waved his grandpa good bye and we made our journey to Balik Pulau. On the way there, hubby's remarks was, I used to see goats running around our kampung, now lucas have to go to a farm to see goats...! Hahaha. Quite true actually :P Soon, kids will only learn about animals from Farms or Zoos.

We arrived around 10.15am, the weather was a bit cloudy but it was a good day.

"This way to the goats!" 

They have a place where the grasses are, with the sign that says, Please take one. 

Well, first impression of the farm is, it isn't as BIG as I have imagined... Maybe, my idea of farm was more of a free range kinda farm, like those in Australia! :D but although it has a strong goat poo stench, it is in my opinion still a very clean place to bring the kids to.

Making our way up the stable.(is that what you call it?)

Second impression of the farm, adult goats are really greedy! They grab your grass at any chance they have, and they are pretty strong too. It is advisable to have adults to help the kids during feeding session as the goats tend to pull quite hard and kids might fall or get hurt.

The goat kids are more popular among the children because they are gentler and less aggressive.

Why Hello there!

Kids love the rabbits! 

After having fun feeding the goats, there's a place where goat milk products are sold. 

Daddy Kam bought us some Pau. They are served hot & quite tasty!

Lastly, a group photo!
