Yard Sweeping There’s a wide array of tasks to do


What’s it like to work with animals? At Kentish Town City Farm we host around 100 students every year on our popular work experience programme, providing opportunities to learn about farm life and animal husbandry.

Typical tasks include taking the animals to & from their pastures, mucking out, feeding, unloading deliveries, animal grooming and day-to-day yard responsibilities. We have goats, sheep, chickens, geese, horses, donkeys, pigs, a cow and small animals, so there is plenty of scope to learn about the needs of a variety of animals and their care.
