Vauxhall City Farm TV

The farm’s answer to COVID-19, young people being stuck inside their homes for months on end, and having to limit the number of visitors coming to the farm to ensure the health and safety of all. It is a virtual way to meet our animals, learn what it takes to be a young farmer, and find out what we do to prepare the farm each day.

About Vauxhall City Farm

Vauxhall City Farm is an urban farm in Lambeth, Central London. We have a fantastic collection of friendly animals large and small. On our farm you can get up close to chickens, ducks, rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas, rodents, and turkeys. In our stables and paddocks you'll see ponies, alpacas, goats, sheep, and everyone's favourite - Jenny the pig.

Our aim is to provide an oasis of nature that brings the sights, sounds, and smells of the countryside to everyone. We believe nature has the power to enhance the health and wellbeing of children, families, and communities. We provide a way for people to reconnect in an enjoyable way with food, farming and the environment.

 

About Vauxhall City Farm TV

Covid-19 has had a devastating impact on many people across the country, local communities, and on Vauxhall City Farm. Although (as of 28 July) we have finally been able to open our doors again to members of the public, we are still unable to offer our popular educational workshops and courses on the farm.

We have created Vauxhall City Farm TV in response to Covid-19 to help connect children and young people with the farm. Through Vauxhall City Farm TV you'll be able to meet many of our animals, learn how to care for them, and understand what goes into running the farm on a daily basis.

We release new videos each Thursday!
