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.

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

Once you enter farm and scroll around this unique spot, which is created by really caring and honest people. This place is so educational for little ones and you can see that all animals are well looked after. Cafe inside is really well set up. 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.

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

We came upon this surprise delight while doing part of the Thames Path walk. I certainly never expected to see a farm along this part London's south bank. Looks like it would be a lot of fun for young children. The cafe has a lovely informal feel, the coffee was good and the cake was excellent. It's a volunteer-tastic so... More

I can't believe I've lived close for so long and have only just been. when you want to escape the city this is such a great place to come. it's free and there's plenty of great animals including pigs, cows, lambs, donkeys, ferrets, goats, and more. the lambs are so cute and love a good pat. you can volunteer here...
