“great place”
Reviewed 18 October 2010

woodlands farm is a community farm run by volunteers in the local area on the borders of London and Kent.
I went to woodlands farm on apple day 17/10. it was free entry and there were lots of stalls and things to do.
There was a treasure trail for children where there were clues hidden on the farm and you to find the answer and at the end the children won prizes.
In the big barn there were lots of things for children to do, such as make bird feeders, and other art and crafts for children who were having lots of fun.
there were a great variety of stalls there with Cathy hot lips, she was selling jars of hot salsa made with scot bonnet chill's she had a taster out VERY HOT set my mouth on fire.
Also there was Rosie's cakery, she had a stall with assorted cup cakes in a variety of flavours to suite every one and beautifully decorated there were Halloween ones, and animal shaped ones and as it was apple day she had apple shaped cup cakes and was also selling chocolate and toffee apples. I treated myself to a Halloween chocolate cup cake, it was a shame to eat it was so beautifully decorated, but it tasted as good as it looked.
also there was a man selling pumpkins ready for Halloween, and brick a brack stall raising money for the farm.
we also went round and saw the animals there were cows and calf's, pigs, sheep, ducks, chickens, a pony, and gunnies pigs. I'm looking forward to there Christmas open day in November.
on a normal farm day they don't have all these stalls and activity's but they have open days through out the year. on a normal day its great to walk through and see the animals.

“An excellent place to spend an hour”
Reviewed 17 April 2010

Woodlands Farm trust is one of a number of city farms in London, this one is pretty close to Greenwich, but would probably need a car or a good knowledge of local buses to get to. The farm is free to get into, and has a small range of animals to get close too. It's a working farm, so things change as you'd expect. On our last visit, they were lambing , so it was a great chance to see dozens of little lambs doddering around on their new legs.

The 1 things stopping it getting the 5 stars is that it isn't large (on our last visit there were pics, chickens, geese, sheep & donkeys). It is something to add to a day out in the area or build into some walks in the local woods (part of the London Green Chain). Unfortunately there's just not enough there to make it a destination for any but local people. This is a bit of a shame as what is there is great.

We normally head here first then over to Oxleas woods (across the road and up the hill a bit) for a walk and a meal in the excellent Cafe there.
