Stepney City Farm

Stepney City Farm

A farm has been here since 1979 when local residents, schools, churches and community groups were consulted and a small patch of land was secured for the farm's use. Formerly known as the Stepping Stones Farm, the 4.2-acre Stepney City Farm runs several projects including a Community Growing Club, Saturday Craft Sessions and open volunteering sessions. The site has been through several incarnations since the 17th century. Worcester house (locally known as King John's Palace) once stood where the cows now graze and you can still see the ruins of the old Sunday school and the Stepney meeting house. Animals on the farm include pigs, goats, sheep and cows as well as ducks, chickens, guinea pigs and ferrets. Improvements are continually being made and in September 2012 a barn to house the animals during the winter months was opened and a rural arts centre where children can learn ironmongery, pottery and woodwork skills was launched. Free rural arts workshops for all ages run on the first Saturday of every month.
