The Little New Zealand of Sabah, the Desa Cattle Dairy Farm

If you are planning a trip to the Borneo region of Malaysia, there is a place that you should not miss visiting when you are in Sabah.

Above the highlands of Kundasang is the Desa Cattle Dairy Farm. It is situated around 100km from Kota Kinabalu, which would take about 2 hours 30 minutes to 3 hours’ drive to get there. You can also opt to get a taxi or a bus or even rent a car.

Located at the foothill of Mount Kinabalu, Desa Cattle Dairy Farm offers one of the most amazing scenery one could envision. If you ask me, I would say that it is more than just your ordinary cattle farm.

Often chosen as a wedding photography destination, with the majestic Mount Kinabalu overlooking the beautiful green pastures, the scenery is definitely breath-taking, and the cool breeze and air would also add up to the package.

It is not only about the beautiful panoramic views, you can also get the chance to experience first-hand on how they milk the cows and process the milk. Not to forget that you can also buy the freshly processed milk, a variety of cheese, and goat milk yogurts and the best part is, the delicious gelato ice cream.

The real attraction here is the cattle farm, producing about 900,000 litres of milk per year. The farm is 199 hectares and most of the milking cows are Friesians, the highest milk producers of all cattle breeds.

You can just head down from the main building and head straight to the feeding pen and feed the cute calves and goats.

Trust me, if you are bringing your children, they will surely love it. It is an ideal destination for the whole family, where there are activities such as feeding the calves with bottled milk, feeding goats with grass, how milk is processed as well as the milking process are available for all. If you have ever wondered how milk is produced, Desa Cattle Farm is the place for you.

In my opinion, the Desa Cattle Dairy Farm is one of the best places that I have visited so far. It is not only fun but it is also educational at the same time and for me, it is totally worth the time and energy to go all the way up the highlands of Kundasang!

Desa Cattle Dairy Farm is open daily from 8am to 5pm.

So next time if you are planning to head up to Kundasang, put Desa Cattle Dairy Farm on your bucket-list as the experience I got there is indescribable, so I suggest that you should go and experience it for yourself!
