Newham City Farm

Get involved with activity days

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic the farm is still closed and we will provide an update when we are able to open again.

Be a farmer and care for a pony days

Children aged 8–12 can take come and be a farmer for a day, or join us for a care for a pony day. Both offer the chance to get to know the animals and get involved in taking care of them and learning all about. These days are a great way to keep active in the holidays and are held during the school holidays and half-term.

We can also provide farm experience days tailored for adults.

Care farming

Newham City Farm's Care Farming Service is a therapeutic programme of support that uses farming, including animal care and gardening, to benefit adults with a variety of learning needs, health conditions, social barriers and disabilities.

We work closely with people, their parents and carers, to tailor a package that will enable them to thrive within the calming farm environment.

 Care farming offers people the chance to:

  • Attend weekly sessions at Newham City Farm supported by a qualified member of staff
  • Carry out a range of farm related tasks in a positive and focused training environment
  • Develop new transferable skills
  • Meet new people and develop confidence and self-esteem.
