We are a city farm where volunteers care for livestock, wildlife and each other to improve wellbeing and resilience.
Our lovely site has been imagined, developed and nurtured by local volunteers for about 20 years.
Our animals, gardens and allotment are looked after by volunteers, young, old, and in between! We work with many volunteers with disabilities and people who have experienced health problems. Working at the farm helps people to rebuild their confidence, learn new skills and develop new interests in growing food, caring for animals and the environment. It also produces healthy local food and protect the wildlife and nature we all rely on.
We offer volunteering opportunities for children and adults, play activities, training, and support to get into work. Visitors are also welcome to explore our grounds, meet our animals, and see first-hand how food is produced.
