Visiting The Farm

Hello Again!

Young and older visitor at the Farm
Visits Thursdays & Saturdays, booking essential

We’re really excited to have visitors again! We’ve invested in a new booking system so we can manage numbers on site and keep a record for track and trace as well as adding extra handwashing stations. Other than that, spring is blossoming, the frogs are spawning and birds tweeting reassuring us that while it might feel like the world has shifted the cycle of nature continues.

Visits for the general public are on Thursdays and Saturdays, 11 to 3pm. Visits are bookable for groups of up 6 people (6 groups every hour, maximum 36 people on site). Check booking availability on Thursdays 10AM, when new booking spaces are released each week.

Entry is Free

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 therapeutic natural space in the city. 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, pigs Wilma & Betty, plus our lovely cow Shirley, and various small animals. We also have two farm cats, Gracie and Mr Grey, who like to snooze when they can during the day. You might find the animals in their barns or pastures, depending on the time of day, season and weather. On your visit you are very 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 donations to support our work. Donations can be dropped directly into our red post box on the farmyard or make an online donation.
