As part of our getaway to Atta Lakeside Resort Suite, we twice took our daughter to ChokChai Farm to give her the chance to meet and feed farm animals. We made a second visit because she enjoyed it so much on the first day that we wanted her to spend more time with the animals. This is something you don’t get to do when you live in a big city.
About ChokChai Farm
The farm is located about 30 minutes from Atta. It is surrounded by several steakhouses that serve fresh organic food.
Chokchai was initially built by a Thai Cowboy and is a very large farm that produces milk, meat and vegetables. It is very educational for young kids. They can see the modern farm and agricultural life. However, with a two-year-old, we wanted our tour to be short and fun. From the twenty-three different sections that the farm offers, we were mainly interested in five of them:
- Super Cow: a farm to view how cows are raised, fed and milked
- The feeding zoo: where kids get to meet and feed some animals
- Horse riding: where it’s possible to ride horses, ponies, and horse carts
- ChokChai museum: it’s a mix and match of several sections that include the albino animal zoo, along with personally-cherished items from the founder of Chokcha (ie, vintage cars), and a military museum
- The souvenir shop: well, this one is self-explanatory, right?
On the first day, we were not aware that a booking was required in advance to visit the Super Cow, which was a highlight for us. However as the other sections of Chokchai were exciting for our two year old, on our second day we decided to skip the Super Cow and focus on what was more interesting for her age.
The feeding zoo was, without a doubt, my daughter’s favourite part of the tour. She got to meet and feed animals such as lamb, sheep, rabbits and elephants. Each animal has its own type of food that you can purchase onsite.
Other animals present in this farm include ponies and horses. Kids are allowed to ride them with the company of an employee of the farm.
This part of Chokchai is a mix and match of several sections. To simplify it, I can divide it into three parts:
- The white animal zoo (white, as in albinos)
- The military museum
- The vintage car museum
My perception of ChokChai
I love this farm. It is a great learning environment for older kids who can understand and appreciate modern farm life. It is also great for younger kids and toddlers to experience the feeding zoo. The horse riding and the albino zoo were quite exciting for my daughter to meet and interact with those animals. As we went to the farm early on both days, we did not get the chance to experience their steakhouses, but I heard that the food is simply delicious; so if you happen to pass by around lunch time make sure to stop by their restaurants.
