Inner city green earthiness
Aug 2021
I came here this week with my daughter and granddaughter. Many years ago I used to bring my granddaughter here in her pushchair when she was a toddler. This inner city farm has been improved boundlessly since the tragic fire a few years ago. There is now a trendy cafe serving excellent veggie meals. We had toasted cheese sandwiches with salad and their own home-made dressing - very tasty indeed. The farm animals in pens and fields are wonderfully well cared-for and so cute. We saw pigs, ducks, geese, sheep, goats etc etc. There are compost bins, a wormery bin, everything is used and nothing is wasted. There is also a vegetable garden, beautifully tended flower gardens galore, and a very interesting walk around the perimeter and between the fields and pens. Windmill City Farm is a green lung in the midst of and an escape from the city traffic of Bedminster (which is also very trendy these days!).

went with a family group and had a lovely day walking round, beginning with a simple but very tasty lunch under the 'Big Top' outside.

An outstanding cafe and a lovely day out for young families
Nov 2019
We had this farm recommended to us by family living in Bristol and really enjoyed ourselves. Our little boy loved all of the farm animals, especially the pigs. We had breakfast in their City Cafe when we arrived, which was really good. They have a fantastic menu and loads of interesting snacks and dishes, in addition to very good cooked breakfasts. Opening at 9am was helpful too, as our toddler is always up and about early. I would certainly recommend a quick visit to any young families visiting Bristol

A central gem!

This lovely little city farm is tucked away next to the shopping area in Bedminster. It has a cafe, and a small shop selling crafts made by locals, and a smallish number of farm animals, which are rotated over time, but usually contain pigs, ducks, hens, goats, sheep, cows. It neighbours allotments, so you can see those as well, and it has a large greenhouse which grows and sells plants. There are good toilet and handwashing facilities. It's a small area, and not a long visit, but it's a lovely chance to see friendly farm animals in the city, with no admission charge.

Not so bad. Our grand daughter slept through the whole experience. We only needed around 40 minutes to see it all as there was not that much to see and experience.. A little tiered I would say so we moved on. Needed some improvement! parking was a challenge.

A nice escape in the city!
Jul 2019 • Couples
Visited for the first time on the weekend after only finding out about the place (even after living in Bristol for years). A small car park onsite which offered free parking, and if not a quiet road just outside. The farm was very interactive offering both allotments and animals as well as on site farm grown produce for sale in the cafe. Prices in the cafe were competitive and the staff were very friendly. Fun facts while walking through the farm, and who knew that sheep had four stomachs?!
