Woodlands Farm Trust, an 89-acre working city farm. Find out about farming life and experience the countryside including native bird species, butterflies, wild flowers and ancient woodland.
Most people who visit Woodlands Farm don't get much further then our farmyard, however there are a further 85 acres to explore. So join us for our monthly guided walks around the farm. Our walks will highlight seasonal farm activities such as hedging, lambing, the history of the farm and how it works.
All are welcome at the Woodlands Farm Trust Lambing Day. Sunday 12 April 2015 11am-4.30pm. Come and see our new-born lambs, and enjoy the chance to buy quality local produce at reasonable prices, including home-made preserves, cakes and honey.

We welcome organisations who wish to improve their social responsibility and employee motivation.
The farming year
Lots of volunteers want to look after animals, but that is only part of our work on the farm.
Summer brings haymaking and sheep shearing, but the farming year really starts in the autumn.
