The area is beautiful, and does feel like "New Zealand in Malaysia". However... A LOT of the activities are closed. Joined a tour and we were not informed beforehand (there is an entrance fee as well) - no milking, no feeding the cows etc because the management is worried about the outbreak of Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease.

You will see a few cows, and their shop selling various dairy products is open. Just wish that there was more to see since everything was essentially closed, apart from the shop and view of the hills. Hopefully they open up soon, to make the visit more worth it. Good for maybe 30 minutes stopover while in Kundasang.

Misinformation by the farm, their website doesnt give honest notice that their attractions are closed for public and only their canteen/shop is open, why have to pay entrance fee to just buy food and cant see a single cow!

Great place to visit! Go earlier so you might have a higher chance of seeing Mt. Kinabalu from the farm for that picture perfect Insta photo. Plus, better chances of getting a parking spot closer to the farm. Otherwise, have to park by the roadside.
The farm feels like you're in NZ. Be warned though, once you walk closer to the main building, the stench hits you! It is a farm afterall so if you're sensitive to smell, stay outside. Gotta try the soft serve, it's super yummylicious! Behind the main building, there's a pen for you to feed the little baby goats and cows. Only RM1 for a milk bottle, very cheap!

Though it is a good place for Stopover for a short visit and to gather some nice views of the surroundings but the air is just not too pleasant for us to stay any longer !

I came with my family for holidays in the Chinese new year and they would like to experience this farm because a lot of people say worth to come. After we arrived, it's was crowded, as expected. A lot of people queue to buy their milk, yogurt, and ice-cream. Maybe for some people, the milk are the main attraction for the drink but for me, it is the ice-cream.

Be careful with unpolite CHINA tourist, they would just push you over if you blocking their way, not even "excuse me" hearing from them or "sorry".

That day heavy rain so unable to walk around the farm, there's nothing special for me as you can just see how they process the milk through a glass window which funs for some people.

This is just my personal experience and opinion and it may differ from you because of your hobby or interest.

Overall - Just bring your family here to have fun but don't expect too much.

You have been warned.

small farm, nice scenery. Try their gelato. Personally love their yogurt and chocolate favors. Need to pay RM5/person, reasonable, you can take lots of photo here.

Interesting visiting.

Small farm with a nice landscape as a backdrop.

Located slightly off the main vegetable wholesale market of Kundasang, this is an interesting stop if you have time to fill, and if you haven’t seen cows, calves, goats before.

Entrance fees to the farm is RM5 per adult.

There’s a chance for the children to feed the calves and goats. You have the option to buy feed at RM1 a bunch.

It’s a small farm and unless you plan to feed the animals, this would probably be a 30min stop.

Take Note:
- it’s a farm so do expect to smell dung
- sitting area outside has lots of flies
- very long queues for yogurt
- not the cleanest toilets around

We reached Desa around 10am and the whole place stink and full of flies everywhere. Went into the barn and found the only 4 cows already sleeping. So my boy only get to bottle & grass fed the goats. A very sad view of the cows honestly. I even didn't get to buy the gelatos too and left.

Whether you have kids or not, this place will bring out the kid in you and you will not leave until you have bottle fed some calves = you just pay a nominal parking charge/fee and then the rest of the visit is free - just pay for what you use - milk for you or the animals, ice cream etc etc

It was an excellent day out
