Here's just a small sampling of our projects and events.

All are welcome to come along and check out how Freightliners Farm inspired six artists from Central Saint Martins!
PARTNERSHIP WITH CO-OP
Thank you to all Co op members for supporting the Farm when it was chosen as a charity partner for the local Co-ops last year. This meant that if you are a co-op member, you could direct the 1% that the Co-op donates to charity to Freightliners Farm. The £4868.26 raised is helping to:
- provide 1000 school children with guided visits enabling them to see farm animals in real life.
- support educational activities for children and young people through the busy spring and summer period on the farm.
- provide up to 300 local children and their families with free holiday activities encouraging families to spend time outdoors, learn and play together and experience new things.

supporting green fingers
Our productive gardens grow food to supply the Strawbale café and to demonstrate food-growing in an urban space.
Visitors are encouraged to explore the gardens, pick up tips on food growing and find out about seasonal produce. Our potager garden models food growing alongside shrubs and flowers, to create an ornamental kitchen garden. Heritage fruit trees line the walk to the paddocks, plus our espalier, fans and cordon trees fit even a small growing space.
