My daughter and I visit every Tuesday. We love to purchase fresh eggs, apple juice and sometimes the odd plant. I love the fact that it’s a small farm. The staff have always been friendly, helpful, and willing to share information about the animals. I would love to see a cafe on this farm selling local produce and seasonal foods! But even so we love to take a picnic and eat it by the pond. Thanks to all the staff and animals for making our week more adventurous! Can’t wait to see the pizza oven on full use!!

A great day out with kids or just a lazy walk with plenty to look at. A good range of animals to see and interesting vegetable gardening ideas too. The meadow walk is well worth it.

woodlands farm is a community farm run by volunteers in the local area on the borders of London and Kent.
I went to woodlands farm on apple day 17/10. it was free entry and there were lots of stalls and things to do.
There was a treasure trail for children where there were clues hidden on the farm and you to find the answer and at the end the children won prizes.
In the big barn there were lots of things for children to do, such as make bird feeders, and other art and crafts for children who were having lots of fun.
there were a great variety of stalls there with Cathy hot lips, she was selling jars of hot salsa made with scot bonnet chill's she had a taster out VERY HOT set my mouth on fire.
Also there was Rosie's cakery, she had a stall with assorted cup cakes in a variety of flavours to suite every one and beautifully decorated there were Halloween ones, and animal shaped ones and as it was apple day she had apple shaped cup cakes and was also selling chocolate and toffee apples. I treated myself to a Halloween chocolate cup cake, it was a shame to eat it was so beautifully decorated, but it tasted as good as it looked.
also there was a man selling pumpkins ready for Halloween, and brick a brack stall raising money for the farm.
we also went round and saw the animals there were cows and calf's, pigs, sheep, ducks, chickens, a pony, and gunnies pigs. I'm looking forward to there Christmas open day in November.
on a normal farm day they don't have all these stalls and activity's but they have open days through out the year. on a normal day its great to walk through and see the animals.

Needs a major upgrade. Parking increased to make it possible for Coach Parking. An overhaul of the buildings and a 7 days a week Cafe installed and run with enthusiastic staff. I see The Sitopia people have recently arrived and are growing loads of vegetables. I hear on Radio 4 that Windmill Hill City Farm even have Women's Football and a Pitch. Nobody lives nearby so no complaints about Floodlights. Come on Greenwich Council - Get this Party started. No need to go to Godstone Farm or Horton Kirby if this venue get their act together.

No bouncy castles. No expensive entry ticket. No obligation to walk through a giftshop full of pricey niknaks. If you want to experience what goes on in a real farm over the changing seasons - lambing, haymaking, sheep shearing, wild flower meadows, vintage tractors, hedgelaying, fruit picking, mucking out, you name it then either through visiting - Tuesday to Sunday - or volunteering you can have the opportunity to learn new skills or simply enjoy wandering around the farmyard or tracks to see what's going on. Chickens, bantams and ducks are popular with the little ones and the flock of sheep includes rare breeds. There are also cattle and pigs plus a pony. All typical British farm animals - no alpacas or emus but the British White cows are beautiful and the Manx Loaghtan sheep are great entertainers as they still have a streak of wildness about them. A cafe serves proper coffee and hot snacks. Bus stops bang outside.

Yes, this is a farm run for the community but you must also remember when visiting that it is a WORKING farm and as such will have areas closed off at times for short periods when animals are being moved around for public safety........however, people are welcome to wander at their will and at no cost.....where else in London can you wander round a 'working' farm? Nowhere....... is the answer, nor could you wander freely around ANY working farm come to that......so, I guess that makes it unique! It is hugely interesting and educational not only for the children who visit but for anyone interested in REAL farming and all that it involves.......from haymaking to sheep shearing and lambing......this is a rare opportunity......so make the most of it! The work done by volunteers is extremely hard and very physical, there's always alot to do and not always enough people to do it, so please bear with us if things are not 'just so'.

Woodlands farm is a wonderful place to escape into the countrysidea mile from woolwich and in sight of canary wharf. There are birds singing meadow flowers two ponds a wood and green fields and an orchard. The Farm house garden is award winning and beautiful at any time of year. The farm is an educational resource teaching sustainability and protection of the environment. It manages woodlands and hedgerows Our limited resources mean the buildings used for school groups can only open as a cafe at weekends. To assist in managing the land we keep cows and sheep and maintain a cycle of new born, every year. As the farm use to be a pig farm we have a few rare breed pigs and piglets and we also have chickens and bees both for educational purposes and to provide eggs and honey.

Woodlands Farm trust is one of a number of city farms in London, this one is pretty close to Greenwich, but would probably need a car or a good knowledge of local buses to get to. The farm is free to get into, and has a small range of animals to get close too. It's a working farm, so things change as you'd expect. On our last visit, they were lambing , so it was a great chance to see dozens of little lambs doddering around on their new legs.

The 1 things stopping it getting the 5 stars is that it isn't large (on our last visit there were pics, chickens, geese, sheep & donkeys). It is something to add to a day out in the area or build into some walks in the local woods (part of the London Green Chain). Unfortunately there's just not enough there to make it a destination for any but local people. This is a bit of a shame as what is there is great.

We normally head here first then over to Oxleas woods (across the road and up the hill a bit) for a walk and a meal in the excellent Cafe there.

My Godson's (2+3 yrs old) + I loved our afternoon visit to Woodlands farm.
We hadn't planned on going to the farm but we were passing (+ it was FREE) so we popped in.
It was near closing when we arrived but that meant the animals (had just been given their 'evening meal' +) were so engrossed in feeding that they weren't scared off by excited boys squealing.
We only saw Bob-the pony, the cows + sheep as it was extremely muddy + we weren't wearing wellies.
All the staff are volunteers + are very friendly + helpful. One man allowed us into the barn area (which was temporarily closed to the public) to see Poppy, a 2 week old calf. She had the longest eyelashes (runway models would be envious) + was as curious about the boys as they were about her.
Throughout the farm are signs pointing towards wash stations + explaining the importance of washing hands, great for little muddy hands.
We were only there 30 mins but it was enough to make us plan another (longer) visit very soon . . we'll be wearing wellies !
