UK’s first City Farm, founded in 1972
Kentish Town City Farm is a short walk from Camden Town and is a surprising find. It’s the UK’s 1st City Farm, founded in 1972, and is a charity based in the London Borough of Camden offering lifelong learning, outdoor therapy, education to children, adults with special needs and anyone needing respite from the strains of urban life.
The farm has many animals including horses, sheep, pigs, butterflies, and many surprises along the way too.
In addition, they have a lively core of volunteers who support staff in the day-to-day running of the farm and organise seasonal fundraising events. Young people between 8 -16 years support farm activities through our popular Young Farmers Club.
The main farm building provides facilities for visiting schools, community groups and children’s activities. In the farm kitchen, children can learn to cook using fresh ingredients from our community gardens. The gardens provide opportunities for neighbourhood & therapeutic horticultural projects and for children to learn about wildlife & growing food.
Kentish Town City Farm is a wonderful place to connect with animals and nature, learn about the surroundings, and has a strong community feel to it too.
It’s free to enter the farm, and they are open every day from 9am – 5pm.
