A working farm open Tuesdays through Sundays year round, with goats, rare breeds, ducks (Indian Runners and Muscovies), chicks, lambs. The cows are Dexters from Ireland, small and friendly.

Honeybees from the Farm’s beehives pollinate the fruit and veg served in The Strawbale Cafe. Their prize winning honey is on sale from the Farm Shop, along with beeswax furniture polish and candles.

The farm occasionally has courses during the year related to beekeeping and bee care. “We can all help by growing pollinator friendly flowers in our garden and containers.”

Nicola Baird interviewed some of those working at the farm for her Islington Faces Blog:
