It’s great to welcome visitors back to the farm and the animals are happy to see their fans 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, the leaves are turning, the squirrels are storing nuts and hedgehogs hibernating, reminding us that while it might feel like the world has shifted the cycle of nature continues. We look forward to seeing you soon.

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.
KTCF is wheelchair accessible and seating areas offer visitors a chance to rest and enjoy the views. Accessible toilet facilities are available.
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.
