Strawberry Farm, Genting Highlands

The entrance


This is a backdated post.

We went to Strawberry Farm in Genting Highlands over the last school holidays.  It was a public holiday and also my boy's birthday eve.  As we still had cash balance in our Holiday Card from our last Genting trip which was near expiry,  we decided to go up to Genting again after dropping at the Strawberry farm.

The strawberry & chocolate fondue themed fountain


We were greeted by this gigantic fountain at the entrance and the admission to the strawbery farm was free.

The rows and rows of strawberry plants



We decided to join in the fun to hand pick some strawberries and were given a plastic tray and a pair of scissors.  The hand picked strawberries would then be weighed and charged at RM12 per 200gm (if my memory serves me correctly) which was a bit on the high side, guess they had to factor in the wastage.  I saw some kids simply threw the previously selected ones on the ground when they found larger and more juicier looking ones.;(

These two look good though a bit too small

 Definitely not the one on the far right, boy

My boy busy "harvesting" the red and juicy looking strawberries 

It's fun!




They have a cafe selling all kinds of strawberries made desserts but we tried neither.


They have a mini zoo too and the public are allowed to take pictures with them at a price, I think they charge RM10 per photo.  I saw a Malay girl posing with a big, long snake.. for the camera. Isssh..  No.. not even if they offer to pay me double and asked me to pose with those "aliens".. yucks!  I managed to snap this photo before they stopped me. ;)

Next, going  up Genting Highlands.

We went to Genting almost every year, but we never stopped by this place. I think I will make sure we are there on our next trip to Genting.

Sheoh Yan: Do drop by on your next trip, it's fun just to see the kids so excited hand picking strawberries.

Michelle: Hubby says the one that we went was the 1st that started in Genting, the rest follow suit. Maybe it wasn't the harvest season when you went.

Mommy to chumsy: Maybe they just started not long ago. Our hand picked strawberries though not so sweet but not sour wo.

Miche: It's in GohTong Jaya. U will pass by few rows of shops (mostly eateries) before you reach there. There's a condo just facing it.

Didn't realise that there is a strawberry farm in Genting. I always thought only Cameron Highlands has them. Now I know. Next time I will bring my kids.
