By 1977, a group of architects were squatting at St Oswald’s Place and began working on a small vacant plot… Jubilee City Farm (as it was then known) was born! It was a collaborative project with local residents growing vegetables, providing for themselves and caring for livestock.
Since then the farm has grown but it still relies on the commitment and enthusiasm of volunteers.
Today the farm has a therapy riding centre, education and youth projects, a horticultural therapy group and an award winning collection of animals including a number of rare breeds. The long standing spinners group continue to use traditional techniques to spin wool from the sheep and alpacas, dying it with plants grown in the farm gardens, while the Young Farmers dedicate time and energy to caring for the animals and represent the farm at agricultural shows.
