A city Farm in the heart of Bristol

St Werburghs City Farm is a small charity. We welcome 60,000 visitors each year, and provide a number 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.
