This farm in East London has goats, pigs, donkeys, rabbits, guinea pigs and sheep, but as well as entertaining the younger members of the family with their collection of farmyard animals, they also grow their own produce and run a number of courses. Beekeeping, basket-making, solar electricity, and even bike maintenance and DIY are offered on the premises among others, and there are workshops for kids as well as adults. Sadly the farm has seen its funding cut in recent years, which is why they also hire out office space and sell souvenirs and other products from their shop, such as honey from the farm’s beesand eggs laid by the hens and ducks. Peckish visitors can pop into Frizzante, the Italian café onsite which has a full menu that uses ingredients from the farm or sourced locally.
