Welcome to Woodlands Farm, an 89-acre working farm in London.
Find out about farming life and experience the countryside including native bird species, butterflies, amphibians, wild flowers and ancient woodland.
Saved from road and housing developments by local campaigners in the 1980s and 90s, the Woodlands Farm Trust was established in 1997 to safeguard the farm and its unique environment.
The farm is managed in a way that respects habitats and enhances biodiversity, focusing on conservation and education for all the local community to enjoy. The farm is a member of Natural England's Higher
Level Stewardship scheme which aims to help create and maintain a
diverse habitat of insects, animals and plant species.
Regular visitors to Woodlands Farm will have noticed the building work taking place throughout October. The new building will contain a large classroom and toilet facilities which will be used for visiting school groups and other educational events throughout the year.
9.30am to 4.30pm Tuesday to Sunday, including Bank Holiday Mondays. Closed on Mondays and Christmas Day.
Along with school visits we also have a toddler club and run different children's activities during the school holidays.
We welcome organisations who wish to improve their social responsibility and employee motivation.
Summer brings haymaking and sheep shearing, but the farming year really starts in the autumn.
Lots of volunteers want to look after animals, but that is only part of our work on the farm.
