Visit our farm

Our smallholding is home to a range of livestock including sheep, goats and pigs which are bred for meat, ducks and chickens for their eggs. The Farm is situated opposite the award-winning City Farm Cafe, adventure playground and community building. We are open to the public between 9am and 5pm, 7 days a week. The City Farm is free to visit and welcomes more than 40,000 visitors each year.

We have a great little adventure playground, built by the Green Play Project that incorporates cargo netting, a secret tunnel, climbing frames and hide out shelters. The adventure playground is right next to the Farm Café.

Staying Safe on the Farm

Visiting a farm can be enjoyable for everyone. But such visits can never be free from all risks. All animals can potentially carry infections that can be harmful to people, particularly children under 5 and pregnant women.

The bacterial infection known as E.coli is a particular risk, and you will see our sings and posters around the farm reminding you to wash your hands in one of our three hand washing stations as you leave the farm.

Please always wash your hands thoroughly with the soap and warm water provided. Do not use your own gels or wipes as these products do not remove E.coli.
