Brooks Farm Centre

our animals

Brooks Farm is situated in Skeltons Lane Park and has been a feature of community life in Leyton for over 20 years. Along with a range of animals including sheep, donkeys, ponies, goats, rabbits and hens we offer a range of farm based learning activities for the wider community. As well as being a lovely city farm, Brooks Farm is a place to study full time and part time courses. It is also a well-equipped Outdoor Learning Centre and ideal for school groups and parties. You will need to book these activities so please contact us for availability and prices.

Otherwise, Brooks Farm is free to enter for if you simply want to walk around and enjoy the experience of visiting a farm. Please do not give the animals any food. If you want to feed the hens, ducks, sheep or goats special animal food can be purchased from three dispensers – we’ll show you how. There is interesting information and useful facts and figures about the animals and our staff and students will be on hand to answer questions you might have.
