Hackney City Farm is located adjacent to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital for children. The emphasis is on giving people the chance to see a real working farm in the city center, so don't expect a mini-petting zoo. Animals on the farm include cows, pigs, rabbits, poultry, and everything else you'd expect to find on a domestic farm. You can't feed the animals, but your tots will love the chance to get close to real live farmyard friends. There are paddocks and gardens for adults to stroll. The farm also runs pottery and upholstery classes, in addition to a summer play scheme. Call for information about adopting animals, volunteering, farm community projects and school visits.
