En Adziz and his goat farm

When we stepped out of our cars, someone exclaimed, 'Oh, it's so peaceful!'. A welcoming sight greeted us at NURFARM AGRO. Being on a farm evokes warm sentiments like this especially for city folk . The abundant greenery and the rustic look coupled with the chickens doing their swagger instantly won us over.

The GPS did not fail us; we took the wrong turn and finally  it was a relief to hear the lady's voice announcing crisply,' Arriving at destination' which was in Ulu Langat. En Adziz and his wife, Pn Zaini greeted us warmly and escorted us to their admin office, a house built with recycled timber. The house has an airy feel and we seated ourselves in the lecture room, ready to absorb  En Adziz's journey into carving his path as a goat farmer. Before the tour, we were served with drinks and snacks  like curry puff and cakes.

He has 270 odd animals, goats and sheep inclusive. The goats are of the Jamnapari and Boer varieties reared for meat. Work is never done on the farm and this farm has an integrated farming concept. There's the animals for meat, organic fertilisers and soil mix from the dung, And naturally, plants thrive well  from the specially processed fertilisers. If anyone fancies fishing, there are 2 ponds and you can fish for your dinner. But the scorching sun beat down on us and we  retreated to shady spots. We bought  some plants. Me, I couldn't resist a lime, lemon (Australian variety) and a passionfruit plant. Sure enough, there'll be a squeeze in the garden  which prompted my son to say that I was turning my garden topsy turvy!!

That's my name!

Do you love me? Recognise me ?- I'm a Jamnapari - see my long, pendulous ears, arched Roman nose, long neck, horns project backwards, short tail which is typically curved upward.
Bags of grass for the goats are safe  till the next feed. En Adziz says the goats are quite voracious eaters.
Sheep from Australia, Indonesia  - these do not have much wool.

Watch it, John! Do not try to get fresh!!

No nibbling my bum, thanks!
Take more pics of me! 
The 2 storeyed barn  - full marks for cleanliness.
Do I remind you of  Jar Jar Binks in Star Wars ???
He's mine for now!

  1. Great pics! What a fun adventure. I especially like the goat who looks like Jar-Jar, and the baby, of course.

  2. There is something unique about the way they look.Their face and the some kind of peace and calmness.

  14. Hello,

    Very interesting post about the farm and lovely photos.

    City dwellers are always thrilled to be in a farm because there is very little greenery and clean air in the city. The freshness of the farm is something very special and gives us inward peace and calm.

    Best wishes,

  15. Mehhhh-nificient trip to goats farm and seeing lots of fun cuddling the young and old goats. tQ
