About Hay Dairies

With more than 20 years of experience in the consumer industry, Hay Dairies is the only goat farm in Singapore since 1988. This is a family owned business and was first established by Mr Hay Yak Tang in 1920, who had evolved his farm from one that used to rear ducks, chickens and pigs to the goat farm it is today just after pig farming was phased out in the 1980s. Now, the farm holds more than 800 goats and takes pride in using only the latest milking, pasteurising processes and bottling for the sale of locally produced goat's milk in Singapore.

Singapore HeritageFest

The Singapore HeritageFest (SHF) is the National Heritage Board’s signature annual outreach event that celebrates the many facets of Singapore’s diverse heritage and culture. SHF works with individuals, groups and communities to co-create programmes and offerings. This allows the festival to uncover lesser-known stories and narratives, engender a greater sense of ownership, and empower Singaporeans to safeguard and promote our shared heritage. The inaugural edition of SHF was staged in 2004, and since then, the festival has continued to provide on-site and online experiences with yearly themes that focus on different aspects of Singapore’s heritage.
