Farms in Singapore’s countryside are arguably the best kept secret of Singapore’s attractions!
Do you know there are over 200 real working farms in the six Agrotechnology Parks in Singapore, occupying a total land area of 1,500 hectares Bounded by the land and manpower constraints, farms practise modern intensive farming that suits the tropical climate. This makes them interesting as unique Singapore nature attractions.
The largest Agrotech Park situated in the north-western part of Singapore, which occupies 858 hectares, about 16 times the size of the Singapore Botanic Gardens! There are farms growing fruit, vegetables, ornamental plants, rearing fish and goats. Some farmers in this area enjoy showcasing their farms to visitors and have come together to form an association called Kranji Countryside to raise public awareness and appreciation for this nature-based asset of Singapore.
