Desa Dairy Farm is located at the foothill of Mt. Kinabalu, at the Mesilau Plateau, Kundasang, Ranau. It is one of the subsidiaries of Desa Group of Companies which is wholly owned by the state government of Sabah, Malaysia.
Desa Dairy Farm provides good education for children even adults to understand how fresh milk is being processed from raw to finish product. The best time to visit the farm is around 2:30pm as milking session is starting at 3pm every day. You can see all the cows are lining up waiting for milking.
Friesian Cattles are reared in this farm to produce around one million liters of high quality fresh milk annually. The processing plant is fully automated at all stage of production. Fresh milk in original & chocolate flavors is available for sales at the lobby. Some souvenir also available and it is always nice to grab something for friends and family other than fresh milk!
You can see Desa Dairy Farm far from the main road in Kundasang. It is not hard to find but there is no public transport to reach there. If you stay in Kinabalu Park or resort nearby, you may ask for transport from the reception. All the local folks know how to get there! You can see Australian Memorial Park at your right hand side on the way up to the farm
Mt. Kinabalu is just in front of you on your way in to Desa Dairy Farm if weather condition is good. You are viewing another side of Mt. Kinabalu! The cold weather, farm fencing, and Friesian cattle make you totally away from all the pressures and stressful life from the reality world. If you already arrive in Kinabalu Park or nearby resort, try to experience Desa Dairy Farm and take some nice photos along the way. “It’s not just about the milk!!! It is the DESA DAIRY FARM EXPERIENCE.”
