Get up and close with some farm animals this weekend with the family at the Freightliners City Farm.
Freightliners City Farm is a 2.5 acres green space in the very urban London Borough of Islington. It is a small community farm where a diverse range of people take part in farming and gardening and people can visit and spend time in a countryside type environment in the city.
They keep a variety of farm animals including cows, sheep goats and poultry. Many of their animals are rare and traditional breeds contributing to genetic diversity among the national herds and maintaining a link with our heritage.
Their gardens provide an attractive and tranquil green space and a chance for people to discover and learn about a variety of plants. You will find fruit and vegetables, wildlife friendly and native plants, exotic and special interest varieties.
The Strawbale Cafe is run by farm staff and volunteers serving artisan teas and coffees, soft drinks, vegetarian lunches and farm baked cakes.
