Help pay for the care of the farm animals and support this well loved community space. Any contribution, no matter how big or small, makes a difference.

Just £15 can cover the costs of feeding one chicken for six months. While £30 makes it possible to feed growing piglets and their mum for a whole month.

Leave a legacy

There is no greater gift to younger generations than a place full of opportunities and wonder. At Hackney City Farm we pride ourselves on nurturing young people and caring for nature.

If you want to support a brighter future for young people in Hackney in your will please contact us to arrange a meeting.

Support the animals

With your support we can continue to care for and keep the animals fit and healthy for all to enjoy! All the big animals cost £350 a year. 

If you would like to make a smaller contribution, you can support one of the smaller animals for £65 a year. 

Donations go towards the upkeep of the animals, for example, feed, bedding, vet bills, farrier, electricity, water, maintenance and fencing.
