The Trong Leisure Farm & Resort (自農休閒農莊) is located in Trong, Perak. Many visitors flock to visit the farm to see the thousands of ducks reared on the compound. The farm is nestled between mountains while the old mining pools have been transformed into a natural playground for the ducks !
The farm is also referred to as “Terong”. Even its Chinese name has two versions – “自農” and “直弄”. I like the first version better because there is a beautiful meaning behind it – self proficient and self farming, while the second version is just a direct translation from the English/Malay pronunciation without any specific meaning.
When you first enter the farm, there is a small pool for boat rides in cute, ducky boats (RM 15 for a 15 minute boat ride on the yellow boat, RM 6 for a 15 minute boat ride on the white boat).
The farm has accommodation facilities too if you want to immerse yourself in nature.
Feeding them is a fun activity to do. The moment they see fingers, they’ll all run towards your fingers, and start pecking at them ! It’s not painful at all, but slightly ticklish because the beaks are not sharp and they have no teeth.
The ducks at the Trong Leisure Farm are the “Pekin-Duck” breed. The little “education corner” provides more information about ducks in general. The ducks age very different from us. They grow older everyday literally because their one day old is equivalent to our one year old !
