Stepney City Farm Stepney Way London E1 3DG
Stepney City Farm is a three acre working farm; a rural oasis, in the heart of Tower Hamlets
We are open to the public 6 days a week and mostly have rare primitive breeds - Goats, Sheep, Chickens, Ducks, Pigs, Donkeys,
Expect to hear sounds of London fused with farm bleats blares baas and crowing.
Residents in London’s East End got together in 1979 to set up a community farm on a derelict site bombed in World War II, originally called Stepping Stones Farm.
In the years running up to 2009 and following the death of one of the founding members, the site began to fall into disrepair and faced closure. A new charity – Stepney City Farm – made up of local residents who tirelessly volunteered their time, effort and creativity, took over in 2010.
The next exciting phase in the Farm’s history begins as an acre of land used for Crossrail work is returned to the Farm, and we are granted a new 10 year lease on the expanded site in 2022.
We’re very much here to stay.
The streambox will be located in the centre of the farm to get all sounds of the farm from the farmers market to the animals to the people
Keep an eye on the farms website and join the mailing list as we will be recording sounds of our pond and sharing with all very soon. These sounds will be captured by the musicians in residence for the Norfolk pond restoration project "the secret life of ponds"
