One of London's largest community farms

Location: Faggs Road, Feltham, TW14 0LZ

Description: 'Hounslow Urban Farm' is one of London's largest community farms. Covering 29 acres it is an important educational resource and leisure facility for all the family.

Visitors can enjoy a variety of colourful and unusual farm animals close-up, including 5 types of pigs, goats, cows, rabbits, ducks, geese, alpacas, rheas chipmunks and lots more.

Many of the visitors to the farm are urban residents who have little or no contact with a traditional farm environment or livestock. The farm offers an opportunity for close contact and interaction with a variety of animals in a safe environment.

Some of the animals are rare breeds which are in danger of dying out due to intensive farming methods. This was recognised when the project began and the farm now breeds a variety of rare or endangered domestic livestock including: sheep, goats and pigs.

The farm also offers a cafe during the weekends and school holidays, with a range of beverages and souvenirs for sale.

One for all the family.
