Hackney City Farm is a great way for kids to learn about farm animals without leaving the city. Situated in Haggerston Park, close to Columbia Road and Broadway Market, you could technically have a whole day out with flowers, farms and food.
The farm houses small animals like guinea pigs and rabbits as well as traditional farmyard animals like sheep and goats. You will also find a number of chickens, geese and ducks. All the animals have names – the pigs are called Pepper and Pearl.
The Café deli Frizzante is a great cafe onsite. The food is not entirely childfriendly but it is part of the slow food movement and so much of the food is sourced from the farm garden. The farm shop sells eggs laid by the chickens and ducks and honey made by bees at the farm.
