A local community Farm, right on the Thames Path in Rotherhithe, across the river from Canary Wharf.

Much more than just a Farm, with loads to see and do for all ages.

The Farm is open 7 days a week, but on-site Piccalilli Cafe closes on Mondays.

They are all immaculate & it's a great little educational spot if you don't often get the chance to be up close to animals. There is a... More

Food is fresh, organic and tasty. Adds charm and character to Rotherhithe. The fry up breakfast or make your own breaky is particularly great, as they serve it all day. The kids get to feed the animals but you have to buy the food pellets to ensure they conform with organic standards. Also listed as a charity as they get... More

Allows you to forget London rush and get a little village feeling. Menu offers multiple... More

Found this little treasure on a stroll alone the Thames walk . Called in for a coffee what a treat, small cafe serving lovely meals over looking a charity run city farm. A little oasis in amongst the busy city.

Have been here many times and love it. A petting farm right on the river thames. They have a range of goats which you can feed, along with sheep, horses, pigs, ducks and others. The cafe is also fantastic as it uses locally made produce and puts effort into making some spectacular tasty dishes. Had an amazing seafood skewers whilst... More
