Freightliners FarmThis working farm, located in the heart of Islington, has a wide variety of animals ranging from rare breed pigs and goats to new born lambs and chicks, many of which can be adopted through the farm's Adopt an Animal Scheme. There's a Saturday market from 10am to 3pm with stalls selling cakes, home made cooking, arts and crafts, jewellery, clothes. Founded in 1972 on waste land behind King's Cross Station, Freightliners Farm was so-called because the animals were housed in railway goods vans. Since then, the farm has moved and the animals have gained purpose built homes, erected in 1988. The farm also boasts some stunning ornamental and kitchen gardens, five beehives and a Wednesday afternoon gardening club. If youre after some fresh, home-grown, homemade produce this is the place to pick it up. Fruit, vegetables and honey all produced on the premises are available from the farms popular shop. The Strawbale Cafe is aptly named; built by farm volunteers out of traditionally jointed green oak with straw bale insulated walls and a green roof, its open Thursday to Sunday, 10am to 3.45pm, serving tea, coffee and cake. This is a rural haven in the heart of the city.
