The farm remains closed to visitors while national Covid restrictions are in place. We will continue to review Government guidelines as they emerge and will update via our website and social media.

About the farm

Kentish Town City Farm is a charity that provides opportunities to help people connect with animals, nature and the environment. We are an educational resource for school children to learn about animal physiology, where food comes from and the natural world. We also provide therapeutic riding to people with special needs and farm related activities to local children and families.

Members of the public are welcome to visit to see the animals and enjoy a quiet rural space. Children aged under 8 years old must be accompanied by an adult at all times while at the farm.

The farm covers a 4.5 acre area alongside two railways lines with flourishing community gardens, a riding arena and wildlife pond. It’s a small holding with goats, sheep, chickens and geese, plus 3 horses, 2 donkeys, 2 pigs, a cow and various small animals. We also have two farm cats. You might find the animals in their barns or pastures, depending on the time of day, season and weather. On your visit you are welcome to ask staff or volunteers questions about the farm and animals.

Visitor donations are also very welcome. Entrance is free but we rely on visitor donations to support our work. You can drop a donation directly into our red post box on the farmyard or make an online donation with your debit or credit card.
