Wythenshawe Community Farm is a registered charity (charity number 515619) which was set up in 1984. It has become one of the most popular facilities at the Park.
The farm is open seven days a week, from 11:30am to 4pm between April and October, and from 11:30am to 3pm from November to March.
Located next to the children's play area, the farm gives children a chance to learn about where food comes from, and all the elements of a working farm in an urban setting. As well as cows, sheep, goats, pigs, ducks and horses, we have a prize-winning herd of Hereford cattle. Our extensive breeding programme means that baby animals are often on site. Visitors can 'meet' the animals and can sometimes watch the animals feeding. This is usually around 3pm but times and availability may to change.
Historically, fruit and vegetables were grown in the garden to supply the Tatton family at the Hall, and the farm now sells a range of locally produced food including meat, seasonal vegetables and eggs from the hens on site.
