Desaru ostrich farm, johor

There are something about ostrich that trigger an adrenalin rush on my eldest daughter. The mere mentioning about ostrich will left her bouncing excitedly . We had been to various ostrich farm all over malaysia and so far this is the best and the most complete ostrich breeding facility. Most of the ostrich farm we visited before only focus on the ostrich alone , what i mean is there are only a few adult ostrich and nothing else .The best example is the PD ostrich farm,there is no effort to educate the visitors about the ostrich breeding , their physical anatomy , their lifecycle , habitat and etc.We went there , pay a few ringgit of entrance ticket , watch a few ostrich and go back home without any knowledge about ostrich.

But this place is very different , you enter without any knowledge about ostrich and you exit with some hands on knowledge about ostrich.There are briefing session by the breeders on ostrich and they even gave us a demonstration on how to safely crack an ostrich egg without destroying its shell . They breed the ostrich mostly for local and singaporean market and you could see different physical development of an ostrich starting from day 1. There are around 300++ ostrich roaming free within their enclosure .An interesting fact about ostrich is that only 30% of its meat are process into food item , the rest are turn into medicinal product like ostrich oil and tonic.This had made an ostrich meat rather damn expensive at rm45 per kg. The meat are also sold here and for muslim don't worry as they had obtain a halal certificate and the certs are displayed at their shop.

I've tasted ostrich meat before and i must say that they are the best.I highly recommend this place due to its educational value . It's a great exposure for me and my family.Do visit this place when ever you are in desaru , johor.
