Dairy Farm Residences is built along Dairy Farm Road. Many are puzzled on how does the road name come along since there are no farms in Singapore?
Back in the years 1930s, Cold Storage’s Managing Director began the world’s first dairy farm in a hot climate on the grounds of Bukit Timah Road. The aim of the farm was to cater pasteurised milk fresh from the farm to the local expatriates. The brand is known as’ Magnolia’.
