About Deen City Farm

Based in the heart of South West London, Deen City Farm is one of the capital's oldest community farms.
Spread over 5 acres and home to animals of all shapes and sizes, we enable local people to take part in countryside activities, irrespective of their background or abilities. Deen City Farm works in partnership with a number of organisations and groups to provide volunteering and training opportunities to people of all ages and abilities.


Kind words

Stephen Hammond MP

“We are very lucky to have Deen City Farm in our area. It is not only a great day out for the whole family with plenty of animals, but also provides fantastic educational and volunteering opportunities.”

Cllr Stephen Alambritis

Leader of the Council, London Borough of Merton
"The London Borough of Merton is proud to have worked with and supported Deen City Farm for many years now. The farm is an integral part of the community in the borough."

Andrew Marsh

"Have come here many many times with my children in the past.  It really is one of the hidden gems of the local Wimbledon area. If you haven't yet been, you really should do!"

David Fernando

"Simply the best city centre farm I've ever had the great fortune to visit. The staff are great and the animals are brilliant! Horses too - who would have thought? My children have volunteered here in the past, love it"
