Kentish Town City Farm is a community charity that helps city people connect with animals, nature and the environment. The farm is situated on a four-acre site, alongside two railway lines in the inner London Borough of Camden. There are over 50 animals, with pasture areas, a riding arena, a wildlife pond and community gardens.
We provide an extensive educational programme to schools, therapeutic riding to people with special needs and farm related activities to local children. This work is supported by the London Borough of Camden and the City of London Corporation’s charity City Bridge Trust. In addition we have a lively core of volunteers who support staff in the day-to-day running of this community project and organise seasonal fundraising events.
The main farm building provides facilities for children’s weekly play groups, arts activities and visiting school classes. In the farm kitchen, children can learn to cook, using fresh ingredients from our gardens. We also provide amenities to visiting corporate teams and host evening events & children’s parties. The indoor and outdoor spaces of the farm are available for hire all year round.

Kentish Town Memories hosts our collection of vintage farm photos, video and audio files. You’ll find interviews by local people, volunteers & staff who tell the fascinating story of the farm from its radical community arts roots in the 1970’s. Since its beginning, the farm ethos was based on inclusiveness, active involvement and empowerment of the local community, which are still at the heart of our values today.
