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. We have sheep, goats, ducks, chickens, geese, three horses, two donkeys, a pig and a cow. There are animal pasture areas, community gardens and a wildlife pond, plus a riding arena.
We provide an extensive educational programme to schools, therapeutic riding to people with special needs and farm related activities to local children and families. 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 the farm and organise seasonal fundraising events. Young people between 8 -16 years support farm activities through our Young Farmers Club.
The main farm building provides facilities for children’s weekly play groups, creative activities and visiting school classes. In the farm kitchen, children learn to cook using fresh ingredients from our gardens. Our farm gardens provide opportunities for garden related activities for children and families as well as local community groups and projects. 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 and 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.
