Buffalo Park Langkawi Kedah Taman Kerbau from Official
Buffalo Park Langkawi Kedah is located at a remote end of Padang Matsirat amidst lush greenery and rubber plantations with wonderful backdrop of mountains, the Buffalo Park Langkawi is nestled in a scenic setting. It is an active dairy farm which also promotes Agro Tourism.
So, if you like nature, far stretching green paddy fields and etc., then you should not miss out on this. Another great reason to come here is to get Mozzarella cheese. This is the only place in the whole of Malaysia where you get Mozzarella Cheese freshly made from buffalo milk. You don’t have to go all the way to Italy for that any longer.
The Buffalo Park Langkawi was opened in 2006 when several farmers agreed to contribute their farmlands (paddy fields) to create this dairy farm in natural surroundings of mountains and rainforests. Since then, it has grown in stature and now some 100 water buffaloes (which are the premier milking) are kept here for making organic fertilizers and milk products.
The milk produced in the Buffalo Park is used for making milk-based products such as cheese, yogurt, ice creams and flavored milk of different types. All these products are made right there at the farm. You can also see the making of Mozzarella and other types of cheese in the farm.
However, note that these activities have specific timings, and you need to be present during such time to take part in it. The farm also offers rides (RM20), pulled cart rides (RM35), anok rides (RM25) etc. There is a cafe at the entrance of the dairy farm. It’s open from the sides and offers a nice friendly and casual ambience. You can plan to take your lunch here.
One of the best items in Buffalo Park Langkawi is the steak made out of buffalo meat and served with mashed potato and sauce. It costs RM15 per plate. However, order that in advance since they take time (about 20 minutes) to prepare that.
You will also get all the milk products in the cafe that are prepared in the farm. There are ice creams of different flavors made out of buffalo milk. Costs RM2 for three scoops. Found them a little sweet and melting quickly, but quite nice though. There are at least five to six flavors at any time. Mango lassi was really great and refreshing.
Other great milk products include the famous Mozzarella Cheese (RM12 per 100gm) and Ricotta Cheese (light & creamy, RM6 per 100gm), buffalo milk (RM3), Yogurt (RM3) and flavored curd (RM2). At the cafe you can order for bread with Mozzarella cheese. You can also buy raw meat here. All these products are mainly supplied to local restaurants, hotels and stores.
However, you may not always find milk products to buy and take away, but usually the cafe serves them for you to have there. To add to the overall ambience, often a soft local music is played at the cafe which can be heard from almost all corners of the farm. How much is the admission fee to enter Buffalo Park Langkawi Kedah Taman Kerbau? For adult, you will be charged RM3 for locals (with MyKad), RM5 for visitors from other countries.

The farm is an ideal place for children to enjoy and learn about buffaloes and how the milk is used to make such products. As a visitor, you can participate in several activities in the farm. You can go to the place where the buffaloes are kept under the shades and hand feed them with grass. Their babies can be fed with milk from bottles. And of course, you can take lots of pictures.
Buffalo farm is located in Padang Matsirat area in a somewhat remote location (a village area). It’s better to take a taxi by the hour and visit the farm. It may be difficult to find the place on your own. The approach road to the farm is quite narrow. It takes about 30 minutes from Kuah town and 10 minutes from the airport by car.

Oleh yang demikian, penternak kerbau di Taman Kerbau Langkawi perlu dimantapkan dengan penternakan yang sistematik supaya industri Langkawi terkenal dengan industri kerbau dan pernah menjadi pengeksport ke tanah besar. Keadaan ini berubah apabila Langkawi membangun ekoran status bebas cukai. Jika tiada intervensi, bilangan kerbau akan terus merosot.
