An unusual routine

This is an unusual routine when the Circuit Breaker just started on 7 April. Most of the days I’m working from home instead of at the farm. This means that I do not get to interact with customers as often as I would like. However, I do get more free time in the morning! With more people staying at home, there is lesser traffic coming into the farm. Nowadays, only a few of our regular customers will come by to pick up produce every other hour. Most of them do come by leave promptly whilst observing the strict rules we have placed for social distancing.

As a front-line worker during this tense period, I’m spirited by the cooperation and mutual support that our customers are giving! I hope everyone else is coping well and taking the Circuit Breaker seriously! 4 more weeks to go!

JFF NEWS: Singapore Young Farmer’s ‘Next Chapter’: Froggy Ribbit Affair

Singapore Young Farmer’s (SYF) ‘Next Chapter’: ‘Froggy Ribbit Affair’ is a half day event on 24th of April 2016. It was a fun experience preparing for this event with the JFF team and I was relieved to receive good feedbacks from the participants during the event. We also had helpful volunteers from the SYF team and also guests from our neighbouring farms sharing that they really did had an amazing time with us!

If you are wondering who are the ‘Singapore Young Farmers”,  they are the youth arm of Kranji Countryside Association powered by a group of dedicated 2nd Generation Farmers & volunteers, showing the importance of the farmer’s role and also the youth’s involvement in our community. SYF hopes to inspire and empower fellow young people to appreciate and take pride in this local farming community through the SYF activities and events like this!

This 2 hours long ‘Froggy Ribbit Affair’ event is a comprehensive tour which combines both ‘Fun with Frogology’ and ‘Frogolicious’ Tour Packages! One of the highlights was the cooking demo of Fried Frog skin Chicharrons and also Buttermilk Cajun Fried Frog legs!

Here are the photos of this event!

Introducing Charlane, JFF’s Frogician!!!

20140729-171202.jpg
Greetings! I’m Charlane aka Frogician and I’m the newest addition to the Jurong Frog Farm (JFF).

You probably intrigued by the title of Frogician. As my aim as a tour guide would be to fascinate the participants who visit the farm like a magician would during performances. My hope is that it would delight the children to learn about the mesmerizing world of frogs.

Now, people are always curious to know why the decision to work at a farm.

Firstly, my job scope provides me a wide variety of opportunities to learn about entrepreneurial skills, operations and marketing strategies. These are valuable skills that can be hone only through on the job training.

At JFF, we run booked tours for children and it sparked an interest in me because of my love for young children. This will also allow me to use my training as an Early Childhood Educator to inspire children of all ages to have the love for continuous learning at our farm. As an educator, my wish for the children who come to visit will leave feeling that we have enriched their lives in a small way or another.

Last but not least, the farm attracts people from all walks of lives. I find it exciting to meet people and share interesting conversations. It is also a platform to communicate our knowledge about frogs and their beneficial uses.

I look forward to welcoming you to JFF with a magical tour!!

Magically,

Charlane
