Freightliners City Farm is a community-focused charity based in the heart of Islington.

Our Mission

Our mission is to welcome visitors to our farm free of charge, and run evidence-based programmes that have a significant positive impact on both visitors and volunteers in the community.

If it wasn’t for the farm I don’t know where I’d be now. I’m so grateful for everything they did for me.
— Lily, a former volunteer
