It’s a place where people of all ages can get stuck in to growing plants and vegetables, help to look after animals and discover more about our environment
Welcome To Swansea Community Farm

Swansea Community Farm, the only city farm in Wales, is a unique 3.5 acre site in Fforestfach reconnecting people with their food, their environment and each other through educational, volunteering, training and play opportunities.

Volunteers of all ages and abilities have been instrumental in every stage of the Farm's development since the initial idea to build a city farm was formed in 1992.

There are plenty of ways for you to get involved at the Farm, whether you are teacher wanting to bring your class on a visit to the Farm, or someone who can spend a few hours a week and become a volunteer or trustee, or if you want to help us by donating a few pounds, our website will tell you everything you need to know.

We are open Tuesday to Saturday 10am to 4pm. Our cafe serving delicious home cooked dishes is open Thursday & Saturday during the winter (we may be open at other times during the week, please ring before you visit us to avoid disappointment).  Entry to the Farm is free but as a charity, we rely on donations and ask for a £2 per adult and £1 per child suggested entry fee.

Why not come along and find out what the Farm can offer you!

If you want to get in touch, telephone us on 01792 578384 or email any of our staff - you can find all our details on the contact us page.

Sorry, but we do not allow dogs on the site, except registered guide dogs.
