Long line!
While the place has the word "farm" in it, it's not actually a farm where you get to milk cows or anything. The best way to describe it would be that it's a petting zoo. I went this past Saturday with the kids and our friends Suri, Mario and Azryl. We meant to go early, by 9.30am, but we all overslept :p So we didn't reach Farm In The City till 10.30am, where we discovered that the parking was already full, and had to park along the road outside. It was quite a walk to get to the entrance of the Farm, and it was REALLY hot, too!

He wanted to bring this home, and
I probably would have done it
if I had a big enough bag to sneak it out in :p
Needless to say, there was a loooooong line. And did I mention it was really really hot?? Suri, the kids, and I managed to find a spot on the stairs to wait for Mario to get the tickets. It took half an hour D:

Anyhoo, we finally made it into the Farm (which was - surprise, surprise - very crowded). The moment we entered, the kids ran off to feed the giant turtle. FYI, food for the animals are FREE within the farm!

There are plenty of animals to see at the farm, some of which are in their own enclosures, while others are out in the open for your kids to feed and even play with. Some highlights for us included the chicks and the rabbits.
Our little fishermen, hard at work.
One not-so-little lifeguard, also hard at work.

Kids can also go "fishing" in the tiny "stream" around the rabbit enclosure, but there was 1 fish for every 20 kids there, so our three boys didn't manage to get any. Maybe next time! Near the exit is the pony ride - tickets are RM7 and you have to get them at the ticket counter BEFORE you enter the farm.

There are plenty of places to rest your feet throughout the farm, which was great for when I almost fainted twice (I swear I'm usually tougher than this! I still have no idea what caused those bouts of light-headedness). They also have sinks where you and your kids can wash your hands after handling the animals.

Here's Aqil and Azryl just checking out the chicks.
In terms of where to eat, there's one spot to eat once you're inside, but it has a limited menu which consists mostly of snacks. They did have packs of Nasi Lemak, though, so that's what the kids and I had for lunch. There was also a variety of beverages to choose from. There's another restaurant at the exit, but I didn't try that out. I believe it has a full menu, with packages for kids and families. We received a discount coupon at the ticket counter, but I have no idea how long that promotion will last.

Between the crowd and it being our first time there, we didn't really explore the place that much. We did not visit the fruit and vegetable farm, and an area marked "garden", since the kids were all about the animals that day. Hopefully we'll be able to go again soon and add onto the information here!

Kid-friendly sinks
Show times are on the banner in the background,
if you're interested in feeding those specific animals.
The kids thoroughly enjoyed the pony ride, but there
was quite a long wait! We lined up for about 20mins.
