JFF has both a bad and good news to share!
The bad news is, our lease will not be extended. This means that JFF will have to move out of this current beautiful plot of land by June 2017!!
Certainly, we experienced the 5 stages of grief when we received news like this, but this is something we can’t bargain ourselves out of, so getting angry or depressed is not the way to go.
However, the good news is, JFF turns 33 years old today!! So this weekend we’re going to have some fun activities for families and special deals. Be sure to read all about it on another blog post, titled “JFF’s 33rd anniversary celebration!!!”.
JFF has turned 33 years old yesterday, on 29th October!! It’s incredible to see the growth of this farm in the last decade, attracting countless Singaporeans and also overseas visitors! JFF has come a very long way, having shifted from Old Jurong Road to Lim Chu Kang in 1994, and also opening up to the public from being a private farm since the early 1990s! That’s amazing! To be honest, I didn’t know about JFF until I was assigned to come here for my internship. When I was first brought here by my facilitator, I didn’t expect it to be such a quaint and tranquil place. I was expected it to be quite noisy with frogs croaking every where!
To celebrate our 33rd birthday, we’re going to have a few activities and bundle deals at our farm on the weekend of our anniversary week, on the 1st & 2nd November.
1. With every entry into the tadpoles’ pen (30 mins/ $6), you may choose from our beautiful royal headband to take home as a keepsake!
2. Next, Frogician and I will do face painting for both children and adults. You get to choose from the many designs you will like on your face!
3. Only for this Sunday, we will have our barbecued exotic range of meat for sale too. Our BBQ skewers have proven to be very popular during the Farmers’ Market, so we’re bringing it back again on this very special occasion. Be sure not to miss it this time if you didn’t manage to catch us during Farmers’ Market!
Note that JFF opens from 9am – 5.30pm, to the general public only on weekends and public holidays and from Tuesday – Friday to appointment bookings and tour reservations only. Come down to the farm this weekend to celebrate JFF’s 33rd birthday with us!! Hope to see all of you!! 🙂
