Wellgate Community Farm exists as a focus for community, creating an opportunity for people to grow, make a positive contribution and promote social cohesion. Committed to providing a safe, inclusive place for individuals and groups to develop emotionally, socially, physically and spiritually within a working farm environment through participation in all aspects of farming life.

As a working farm, we sell our own vegetables, eggs, honey and meat. We promote compassionate farming and have embraced the RSPCA’s five freedoms within our own animal welfare policy.  

“The importance of this work cannot be over-estimated.  How, for instance, can we expect people to make healthy choices about the food they eat when so many have little or no knowledge of how it is produced?”

A message from one of our Young Farmers!

Hello,

My name is Imogen, I'm 11 and I have been a young farmer at Wellgate Community Farm, between Collier Row and Marks Gate, for three years.

Wellgate is open to the public for free all year round, we teach young people to care for our livestock and we also take animals out to visit schools and events. As a working farm, we sell our own vegetables, eggs, honey and meat. We promote compassionate farming.

I thought it would be good for the community for us to hold a kind of sports day with a mix of traditional / silly farm games (like Welly Wanging and Chicken racing). I talked to other young farmers, the staff, and eventually wrote to the trustess of the farm - they all loved the idea. But a sports day needs competitors so I'm contacting local groups and other city farms to ask if you would be interested in sending a team to compete in the first ever Wellgate Games for a chance to with the Golden Gnome or if you would display our poster where other groups might see it?

Teams need to have 5 children (aged 8-13) plus an adult mascot and if you're interested then please contact the farm where they can give you more information.

Thanks.
