Temporary Closure

Following government advice to limit non-essential social contact, we are temporarily closing the Farm and suspending face-to-face services until the 27th April. Our primary concern is the health and wellbeing of our service users, staff and our community. The animals are all fine and most likely enjoying the peace and quiet!

We know that this is a difficult time for many and we are working on ways that we can stay connected to the people that rely on our services. The Farm team will be in contact with everyone that has recently attended activities to find out how we might support you during this period.

In the meantime, keep an eye on our website, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for cute animal videos, spring time on our sites and ideas of nature and food based activities to do while at home.

Stay safe everyone!

The Farm


A farm in the heart of the city

St Werburghs City Farm is a small charity. We welcome 60,000 visitors each year, and provide a nugmber of vital community services for over 3,500 people facing disadvantage of all ages and backgrounds.

One of our aims is to better connect people with the story of their food, from farm gate to plate. We also support disadvantaged members of our community to learn, grow and thrive, whether it be providing placements for adults with learning disabilities to gain skills in organic gardening, helping a young person at risk of exclusion finish their education or supporting disadvantaged adults to gain in skills and confidence.

Visit us

Come and see what we're up to - meet the animals, or stroll through the community gardens.

Treat yourself to refreshments from the award winning farm cafe overlooking our adventure playground.

Get a £1 bag of feed from a member of staff to hand feed the animals, or follow our new green energy discovery trail around the Farm.
