Please Support the Farm

Lawrence Weston Community Farm is a registered charity. We do not charge for entry, so every donation we receive helps us remain as a free, safe, public green space for the enjoyment of everyone. Donations help us to continue to support many people in need in our local community with our targeted services, activities and projects. Under normal circumstances the farm raises extra income through room hire, corporate days and donations. All of this stopped during lockdown. We know that many people have been badly affected by lockdown and its consequences but if you can afford to make a donation, we would be very grateful. Regular donations are particularly useful - even the price of a coffee every month makes a difference to us!

We have a small Car Park, toilets and hand washing facilities. A hard standing path means most of the farm is accessible for wheelchairs and buggies.

The farm is approximately 8 acres. We have three large paddocks for sheep and goats a wildlife garden, community orchard, outdoor pig pens, areas for ducks and chickens, a vegetable garden and an outdoor soft play area for the summer months.

There is also a small woodland - Water Vole Woodland to explore. Please note there is deep water on site.

"We regularly visit Lawrence Weston Community farm and absolutely love every visit! There is real charm and a community vibe that puts you at ease as soon as you walk in the gates. The play area in the orchard is great fun and the wildlife walk is a beautiful little surprise. We've always found the staff/volunteers to be thoroughly lovely and happy to answer any and all questions."A visitor

You can visit the Greenfield's Centre which is a therapeutic horticultural project run by the Brandon Trust.
