But first, a quick story about the farm. In the late 90s, an ex-military pilot decided to leave the RSAF and go into farming. This Singaporean went across the border, bought a plot of land, and started rearing ostriches after being enamoured by these birds on a previous trip to South Africa. Thus, the Desaru Ostrich Farm came into existence.
