A 14 acre working farm, just a couple of miles from Leeds city centre. Check out farm animals and farm practices at close quarters, as well as an organic market garden with produce for sale, a nature area, shop, renewable energy exhibits, picnic area, visitor centre and cafe.
The farm is sited on Meanwood Beck and demonstrates organic farming and sustainability to members of the public, as well as introducing schoolchildren to various aspects of farming and the environment. The animals farmed are Dexter cows, sheep (Whitefaced Woodland and Southdown), rabbits and hens. They also have two donkeys and some pigs.
The timber-frame Epicentre building is a resource for the farm and the local community, with offices, exhibition space and meeting rooms. It is an example of environmentally friendly self build construction creating a low-energy building using the principle of solar gain. It has a turf roof and uses a reed bed drainage treatment system.
