Hackney City FarmThis inner city site next to Haggerston Park was used as a farm as far back as the early 1800s when fresh produce was grown here to feed the people of the city. Hackney City Farm was once home to West's brewery, from late 1880 until the 1930s, supplying beer to its own public houses in Hackney Road and nearby Bethnal Green. But it returned to its function as a farm in 1984 and now houses small petting animals, calves, sheep, big pigs, Amber the goat and Larry the donkey - who starred in a nativity parade at Westminster Abbey and is adept at social media... he's the one in keeping you informed on Twitter. Courses on a variety of outdoors activities are also held at the farm, from beekeeping to straw bale building - they even have their own building made out of straw on site, used for yoga, woodcraft workshops, weddings and available for hire. Come lunch time the Frizzante cafe is highly recommended with its outdoor eating area, checked table cloths and kid friendly Mediterranean menu.
