    Animals

    Hackney City Farm has a range of farmyard animals including goats, sheep, chickens and donkeys as well as some small animals such as rabbits and guinea pigs.

    Our livestock are on rotation with a farm in Kent, and spend some time in the city and some on the working farm in the country.

    Our chickens and ducks lay eggs daily, which can be purchased in our shop, alongside the honey from our bees.

    Pigs

    We have two Tamworth (ginger) pigs, Pepper and Pearl.

    Ducks

    The waddling ducks wander freerange round the farm and swim in the pond in the fields…how many can you count?

    Sheep

    The sheep are usually to be found grazing on grass in one of the fields. Look out for the lambs bounding around in springtime.
