The Langkawi Buffalo Park is in Kampung Nyior Chabang, situated between the exalted Gunung Raya and Gunung Mat Chincang. It is surrounded by tropical lush green rainforest which makes it a beautiful spot for nature lovers. It is a quite isolated place in Langkawi, about 10 minutes away from Langkawi International Airport.
The farm is mainly focused on milk production as buffalo milk has a novelty value in the country and other organic products such as yoghurt, cheese, ice-creams thus making this an amazing attraction for those who are interested in experiencing farming at close hand.
The Murrah breed is imported from India which is the milking types whereas the Local River buffaloes interbreed with other high milk-yielding kinds. About 1,000 liters of high quality fresh milk is packaged a month including flavored milk, curdled milk and toothsome ice-cream.
Some water buffaloes are swamp buffaloes which are fostered as draft animals and serve as a meat source. You should try their mouthwatering buffalo steak, served with the peppery sauce at the café inside the farm.
The water buffaloes produce only enough milk to feed their young ones and therefore are not suitable to use in making of dairy products.
There are other sections at the farm with different indoor and outdoor activities like you can see for yourself how the processing of milk is done into other products like yogurt, cheese, ice-cream and flavored milk. You can even milk the buffaloes, hand feed them, try buffalo-riding or make your own mozzarella cheese.
Valley Farm is the brand under which they produce an ample range of dairy products including their signature Fresh Mozzarella, creamy lasagna cheese also used as a bread spread, fresh milk, a variety of yogurt, delicious ice cream with many flavors and buffalo meat. The Buffalo Park not only sells these products here but also supplies them to local Restaurants and Hotels.
Another very interesting outdoor activity could be taking part in the "Agro-tourism" activities such as cart riding, 'Anok' riding or taking pictures with buffaloes. Thus it is a wonderful treat for you to indulge yourself in nature and experience the art of raising livestock and farming.
