Surrey Docks Farm is a working city farm in the heart of London.  It occupies a 2.2 acre site on the south bank of the river Thames in Rotherhithe.

The farm works with local communities and the people of Southwark to provide many unique opportunities for people to learn about farming and food production, and to be actively involved in the ongoing work of the farm.

Animals reared on the farm include a herd of milking goats, sheep, cattle, pigs, ducks, geese, chickens, turkeys, bees and donkeys.  The herds and flocks are farmed with specific attention to animal welfare.

There are a variety of green and horticultural areas such as the orchard, herb garden, dye garden, vegetable plots, and the wild area.  Fresh food and produce are on sale to the public.

Other facilities include a dairy, milking barn, bee room, "café Frizzante" (open Wednesday to Sunday only), working blacksmith’s forge and adult education rooms. There is a fully equipped classroom used by schools from across London.
