Does it sound like a dream marathon to run from one farm after another in Singapore??
Dream no more as the first “Farm Race” powered by The Performance Series #5 is happening right here at the Kranji Countryside next Sunday, 18th Dec 2016!
Participants can anticipate lush forestry and farmlands as a beautiful backdrop and perhaps some resident dogs of the countryside to run alongside. For the participants, some sweet deals await you!
JFF partners the run organisers to bring you a good promotion on our newest anti mozzie, beauty product- Collagreen Mosquito Repelling Moisturising Lotion Fortified with Bioactive Collagen. This is a product that PROTECTS, HYDRATES and MOISTURISE at the same time and keeps out mosquito bites and stings! Best part of the story, don’t worry about the sweat washing out the essence of this lotion. Our bioactive collagen has strong binding properties to your skin giving you that UV protection and skin hydration, without clogging your pores, while you sweat and do what you got to do!
Per 100ml bottle: $18 or 2 bottles for $30
Not only that, fancy a nice cold dessert after the race – Health and beauty benefits aside? We will be selling our popular Traditional Royal Hashima Dessert exclusively for all participants at only $5/bowl at the end point!
The icing on the cake – Hop on the free shuttle for the farm visits after race! We’ll be looking forward to seeing you at the Kranji Countryside in another week or so!
“When was the last time you did something for the first time?”
This year has been especially life-changing for me, both literally and figuratively. In Sep 2015, our family welcomed a game changer- a Baby (!) into our lives.
There have been so many firsts over the past year. First time bringing Baby back home into the farm. His first interaction with frogs; His first taste of meat;
His first smile (where people have commented on how much it resembles my Father’s smile); His first words; His first steps; his first appearance on mainstream TV.
These moments certainly reminds myself of my first tour, first project, first hire, first interview, first renovation; these firsts made up the first decade of working alongside with my family on the farm.
This coming 29th Oct 2016, JFF celebrates our 35th Anniversary and it also marks my 1 year and 1 month of motherhood. There have indeed been many firsts over the past year. And that should be much more firsts to come, not just for ourselves but for JFF as well.
While we are unsure about the eventual move out of this farmland, we are also thankful for the lease extension to the end of 2019. As they say, rest is for the wicked. To stay relevant in this industry, we’ll have to continuously innovate, diversify, and R&D into new frog products.
Most recently, We’ve launched our Collagreen Mosquito Repellent Moisturizing Lotion. It’s a first of its kind of moisturizing artisan product with an added mosquito repellent function. It contains 10% bioactive collagen which are purified and extracted from American bullfrog skin. This idea would have been inconceivable and probably remained an idea if we haven’t met the right partners and married science and tech into a very conventional farming business.
Now we can proudly claim that our frogs used quite to the fullest to combat the mozzies!!
Lastly, I will like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to all our customers who have supported JFF over the years and some of you who witness my transitions in life on this farm. To all the pre-schoolers hopping around our farm, primary school students energetic for herpetology knowledge, tertiary students getting in-depth insights to running a family business and the weekend visitors coming to JFF to escape the hectic city life with their families and their children to catch frogs or enjoy a sumptuous plate of frog meat. Thank you!

The new intern JJ who has just joined us on the 30/8/11, asked me what kind of responses i would expect out of the new market project ( will be talked about in a separate posting) which we will be diving into this week. i shrugged and said, any response would be good. If not this marketing effort would at the very least spread the news to the receiving ends of the email that JFF existed and is very much alive and happening!
From previous experiences (8, 9 years ago), when i started peddling packets of dried snow jelly to the medical halls. I get snubbed by all the chinese TCM educated grey hair folks. Some of them were vehemently insisted that my product is a fake (!!??!). I spent weeks and months, travelling to their medical halls with cooked and raw but soaked samples for them asking them to try for themselves to see the difference. I was SUPER enthusiastic, they were much less interested. Out of the 25 shops i visited, only 7 eventually agreed to put our products on consignment. To date, only 3 of them still maintained an account with us. The shops that i subsequently gave up on, placed our products behind closed cupboards.. or underneath stacks of other brands of dried snow jelly.
” Its ok that you do not want to sell my snow jelly. I have 100% faith in my products and you ought to have some respect for it!.”
Bottomline is to manage your expectation but full conviction on your product!
