    For over 20 years, Hackney City Farm has been giving the local community the opportunity to experience farming right in the heart of the city.

    We offer children and adults the opportunity to get up close to a range of farmyard animals; see, smell and plant vegetables and other food plants; and learn new skills to live a healthier, happier life with a lower environmental impact.

    Other activities

    As well as running our own courses and volunteering sessions, we are a home to various other social enterprises and community groups. We aim to be a centre for environmental improvement and a hub for projects for the improvement of the community and local environment.
