Travel • UK Agro Resort (Sept 2017)
I shall kick start with the most recent, that's UK Agro Resort, we visited during the school holiday week of September 2017.
We cleared Malaysia check point (2nd Link) at about 7:30am and reach UK Agro Resort at 9:40am. This was with the fact that we were led to a different place by our GPS! Don't repeat our mistake. If you are using the GPS, key in "UK Agro Resort" and NOT "UK Farm"!
The husband entered the latter and we arrived at a piece of undeveloped land at Yong Peng. :O
You should exit Air Hitam (Ayer Hitam) & drive towards Kluang. Therefore, with smooth traffic and no detour, the drive should be about 1hour 30mins.
However, be prepared for a rough gravel road at the last 5km leading to the resort.

We took the mini bus tour instead of the horse carriage.
Each paying visitor was entitled to 4 packets of corn-oat feed for the animal feeding, 1 packet of grass to feed the goats and 1 voucher to redeem for a bottle of milk to feed the kid (Ok. Not your kid, alright! I meant baby goat!).
Since we had about 30mins before tour commence, we went to Mini Zoo and Lavender Garden. Surely we can't walk past the "Wishing Goat" without taking a photo,right? We didn't make a wish though. There weren't many lavender blooming, not that the kids noticed. Lil K didn't even realize we walked past the garden and when he read about it on the brochure later on, he asked why we did not go to view lavender *.*|||
DO NOT use up all the corn-oat feed at Mini Zoo! You'll need these during the guided tour, so do keep a few packs for later.
|Awww~~ <3 <3|
|The nursery rhymes "Mary had a little lamb" just come to my mind when I see this kid! ^,^|
Next, the bus brought us to feed chickens and ducks.
Read the information about the animals if you would like to know more, they were pinned on their respective cages as the tour guide did not seem to enjoy talking much (this is purely my experience, it may not apply to all their guides!).
We had a quick lunch before leaving the farm, en-route to Kuala Lumpur.
Conclusion: We recommend UK Agro Resort as a short itinerary if you are around the vicinity or wish to slot in with some programs in between a road-trip from Singapore to Melaka/KL or perhaps during a staycation at Legoland area. Otherwise, do consider a stay-over at the farm for a night or two to fully experience the programmes they offer. Check their website for more information. Drive safe and have a fun!
