What We Do

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, both individuals & groups, are also 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. We have goats, sheep, chickens and geese, plus 3 horses, 2 donkeys, 2 pigs and a cow, as well as community gardens and a wildlife pond. You might find the animals in their barns or pastures, depending on the time of day, season and weather.

A good time to visit is between 9-10:30am or 3:30-4:30pm when all the animals are moving to and from their different pastures. It’s great fun to watch the pigs and sheep running up to their fields and see Shirley the cow plodding along, eating as much as possible along the way!

On your visit you are welcome to ask staff or volunteers questions about the farm & animals.
