Educational farm visit for kids to come up close with frogs
Nov 2018 • Family
First of all, the Jurong Frog Farm is not located in Jurong. But it's nestled in the rural area of Lim Chu Kang.

We got a box of feed for ard $2 for the kids to feed the frogs in the breeding enclosures. For $6 per entry, the kids put on wet boots to go into the pen to handle the frogs. They had so much fun catching and handling the frogs. It's a rare opportunity for our kids to come up close with frogs in a farm.

You can also buy some frog meat or merchandise from the store. Thankfully to those who run out of cash in this rural place, the store accepts Nets payment. The friendly staff at the store will explain to you about the nutritional value of frog meat. We ordered a plate of fried frog legs at $15. It's so delicious that the kids finished up all of it. Even the in-house dog named "Puppy" will come by your table, hoping you could share your plate of frog legs.

If you wish to try your hands in growing frogs, you can get a tank of 4 tadpoles at $15. Let the kids learn to observe the life cycle of a frog.

This is already the third visit for my kids. And each visit is always so educational for them, to know something more about frogs.

only if you have car

If you don’t have a car I would bother visiting. But if you drive up this way to visit kranji reservoir than check it out. Is very interesting and quirky but interesting enough to spend an hour plus on public transport

Interesting... If large vats of frogs are your thing...
Nov 2017 • Friends
On a recent trip to Singapore, my wife and I met up with a friend of mine, and with him having access to a car, we ended up heading to places that perhaps aren't on too many people's "Things to see in Singapore" lists.

One of these such places was the Jurong Frog Farm.

My friend is actively into wildlife, his Facebook is full of pictures of him seeking out various critters out in the wild, or else they're of creatures that he keeps as pets himself. So, when he suggested he'd take us to "lesser known Singapore" we jumped at the chance. There's only so much high end shops you can look at before becoming jaded with travel, people, life...

Anyway, we pulled up, and upon opening the doors, you can't help but hear a low level "humming" sounds. As it approached the enclosures, it quickly became clear that that sound was the noise of hundreds and hundreds of frogs.

You can buy tubs of food pellets to feed the frogs (I think they were around $2 Singapore), so it was a bit of fun feeding them.

Other than that, there's not an awful lot else to do there. There was a "breeding" pool where you could see tadpoles, an area where you pay for your kids to "catch" frogs and then release them again, and a shop/cafe selling drinks, snacks, and frog to munch on.

Walking around outside we did come in contact with wild fruit trees - mangoes, jackfruit, it's always interesting seeing fruit in their natural habitat rather than on shelves in Sainsbury's.

Overall, it was a pleasant experience, although there wasn't anything in the way of information (i,.e., a tour guide, information boards, etc.) to gain some froggy knowledge. Families with young children might get more out of it, but otherwise I probably wouldn't make the trip out there by public transport - I've read that it's not easy, but, if you have access to a car, and are in the vicinity, then it might be worth an hour of your time.

I hade a fun time, what don't plan spending your entire afternoon there.
Nov 2017 • Family
My family and I went expecting to have a blast! It was cheap, barely anyone around, and they seemed to have many different species of frog, you could feed them, and pick them up. But after about 30-40 minutes, you kind of seen everything, so I would recommend going for a quick glance and see what it's about, just don't plan to stay long. I would recommend taking a car though.

Interesting for young kids
Jun 2017 • Family
Brought the kids here today for an outing. It's quite a trek to get here and without a car I imagine it's not so easy. There are various small ponds with tadpoles and different species of frogs, some of them quite huge. Kids can feed or try their luck at scooping up the frogs.

Good outing for kids
May 2017 • Family
Another great place to bring kids and expose them to frogs!

This is within close proximity to the Haydairies Goat Farm. So you can visit big places at the on the same day.

We went there on a Sunday and there was no workers there to mend the frogs. There are about ten sheds where the frogs are, and kids can see These froggies can be seen clearly.

This farm has frog at all stages of their life! A great science trip definitely for school children. Besides frogs, this farm also keeps lots of fishes where the kids can see them easily.

There is a little foodstall but I can't comment because we did not patronise.

Disappointment
Apr 2017 • Friends
Had seen it reviewed positively in SvD (Swedish daily newspaper) and since we had a day off in Singapore, we wanted to see the big frogs. Took MRT to Kanji, and searched for the yellow bus to the farms. It was easier, faster and cheaper to go (4 p) by taxi direct. Well, the frogs were plenty but smaller. No big ones, we read about. Going back was not easy and time consuming. The farm people didn't want to call taxi for us. I called SMRT taxi, but they needed a Singapore number. So wait for another hour for the yellow bus. This was a spoiled day.

Ponds of frogs
Mar 2017 • Family
Went on a saturday afternoon, the place was deserted, perhaps due to the dark skies.
Went in on our own to a shed and saw some frogs. But not very interesting as it was really dark and with no one around to share any info on the frogs.
The only 2 staff we saw were in the shop near the entrance.
The shop had frozen frogs, hashima, crocodile meat for sale.

Great Education
Feb 2017 • Business
One of the surviving farms in Singapore, Jurong Frog Farm offers great education on the life-cycle of the frog, namely American Bullfrog.

Visitors get to observe the frogs in the various life stages up close and possibly even feed and touch them.

You will be surprised to know that the Amrican Bullfrog does not 'ribbit' but 'moo'.

Try the frog pool
Nov 2016 • Family
My 2 yo enjoyed the frog pool. For $6 you get to go into the pool for 30 min; they will loan you a pair of boots as well. Great activity for boys (not sure if lil girls will enjoy playing with frogs).
