Take a sneak peak at the family-run Holiday Farm in Sheung Shui and see why we love it so much.
Visit Holiday Farm in Sheung Shui
Situated in Sheung Shui, New Territories, Holiday Farm is an educational, family-run interactive farm established in 1992. Dedicated to promoting green culture and an environmentally-friendly lifestyle, Holiday Farm welcomes local schools, tourists and family to visit and learning more about the animals and sustainability.
Meet these cute animals at Holiday Farm
Home to many rescue animals, Holiday Farm takes great care of them and makes sure they’re eating and thriving in a safe environment. Offering a selection of fresh vegetables and food on-site such as fresh carrots, grass and bread, visitors can purchase selected items if they wish to feed the animals and help support the farm.
You will also get to have a close look at lots of animals, including cows, rabbits, pigs, guinea pigs, tortoises and more. Since it’s the Year of the Pig, you can’t miss out on two of the most energetic piggies at Holiday Farm, Sum Sum and McMug. They are constantly seeking your attention and hoping that you’ll offer them some bread – and we definitely enjoyed hanging out with them.
Aside from animal feeding, Holiday Farm also delivers a wide range of guided activities and entertainment such as bread making, scarecrow making, D.I.Y. mosquito repellent, water games, carpet sliding, so school kids won’t be bored and visitors can enjoy a fun day out at Holiday Farm to the fullest.
If you’re looking to visit Holiday Farm, make sure to call in advance and make an appointment. Their doors are open when there are more than thirty participants or if there is a school trip scheduled for the day. Due to limited parking space, group participants need to take coach to the farm and small groups can take taxi from Sheung Shui MTR station (private car is not allowed). And after our visit to the farm, we can say It’s definitely one of the loveliest outdoor experiences, unlike any others, to have in Hong Kong.
