Our Charity of the Year

Bath City Farm are delighted to be chosen as charity of the year. Helen Fisher, the Farms Manager said of the award;

"It means so much to have the farms work recognised across our home city and to have the support of staff and customers over the next year. This will play such an important part in helping us to look after this special place, raising funds and awareness of life on the farm."

Set on a hillside with fantastic panoramic views of the city, Bath City Farm is a wonderful 37 acre plot in the heart of Twerton and Whiteway in south west Bath.  The Farm is not just a small holding free for everyone to use, it is also an important asset within the local community, offering adult education courses, volunteering placements and projects that are designed to help people combat issues of mental ill-health, drug dependency, social isolation and unemployment.  

As the only city farm in Bath and North East Somerset, the farm attracts people from all walks of life and of all ages. It provides countless opportunities for social interaction, education, or simply for peace and quiet. The Farm can touch peoples’ lives in all kinds of ways which can be instrumental to their well-being; from a breath of fresh air or taking the kids to the playground, to learning to grow vegetables, cooking fresh food or looking after animals.

The farm delivers 15 different projects which help people of all ages to grow and thrive. Our projects are intended to encourage people to maximise their capabilities and develop resilience, confidence and a sense of purpose. We also run a wide range of community events, related to the arts, heritage and nature and manage the farm site as a free community resource.
