Ostrich farms are common in Negeri Sembilan. There are two major ones in the state. One is in Seremban and the other is in Port Dickson. Although it is an ostrich farm, you will get to see various farm animals like ponies, goats, ducks, turkeys, parrots, hedgehogs, guinea pigs and rabbits. Visitors usually spend time feeding the animals while on the tour.
You can also take the kids to visit the Herb Garden for a pony ride, or just explore the entire farm. There are also fun information boards throughout the farm that will educate and test your general knowledge on ostriches.
You’ll get to try ostrich meat and eggs in the restaurant found at the farm. That opportunity doesn’t come by often so make sure everyone in your group gets a lion’s share.
