Surrey Docks Farm is a working city farm and charity that enables the whole community to learn about farming, food production and the natural environment. We run a range of educational projects targeted to engage those who would benefit most, we are supported by hundreds of volunteers and are slowly reopening for the general public to visit for free.
We’re pleased to announce our phased re-opening starts in May. This month we will be open from 1:30-4:30pm on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Fridays, with a one-way route circling around our fields and past the little lambs. The entrance to the Farm will be from the top of our goat yard via the Thames path gates and will be manned by volunteers. Booking isn’t required, but you may have to wait a little as we’ll have a maximum number of visitors on site at one time to avoid overcrowding.
We’ll update again here and on our social media pages when we’re able to offer more time slots for visitor access. In the meantime, the Thames path and our river gardens will remain open every day from 10am – 4pm, providing views over our duck pond and goat yard, plus access to The Barn Kiosk a pop-up café run by the Pear Tree Kitchen also open every day.
Surrey Docks Farm eggs, meat, seasonal vegetables, plants and more are all available to purchase via our online shop, with collection slots from the Rotherhithe Street gates on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday mornings.
We are following government public health advice to limit the spread of coronavirus. Find out what this means for you as a volunteer, work experience student, young farmer, student, visitor, participant etc.
We’re selling farm-reared meat and eggs. Payments must be made in advance online and collection will be from the Rotherhithe Street entrance at the agreed time only.
We want to support our local food growers and are selling bagged up manure, compost and fruit/veg plants. Payment must be made in advance online and collection times stuck to in order to minimise any contact.
Wildlife on the Farm
We garden for wildlife and encourage nature on our site, as a result the Farm is teaming with invertebrates, amphibians, birds and a regular fox visitor!
Looking for a unique gift idea? We offer Animal Experience sessions here at the Farm. Choose to meet the goats, sheep or small animals!
Save the Farm!
Surrey Docks Farm engages the whole community to take an active role in farming and food production. We’re a charitable organisation that relies heavily on donations and we need your help now more than ever to survive this crisis.
