Forty Hall Farm

Forty Hall Farm, which occupies part of the historic Forty Hall Estate in northern Enfield, is a certified organic farm.  It's a mixed farm with a variety of animals, including many rare breeds and is home to London's only commercial organic vineyard, a community orchard, market garden and farm shop.

The farm is run by Capel Manor College, the only further education college in London specialising in learning about the environment.  It serves as an educational resource for Capel Manor’s students, across a range of part and full-time courses, including those within the College’s Animal Care, Countryside Management, and Horticulture departments

There are plenty of volunteering opportunities, both for individuals and corporate volunteering events.

Events on the Farm

Forty Hall Farm plays host to musical events, including the annual Livestock festival and monthly Music from the Black Barn.

For children the Farm is the location of a Forest School.

For food lovers there is the annual Enfield Food Festival at August Bank Holiday and an Apple Fair in October.

Veg bags

The Enfield Veg Co delivers weekly bags to eight drop-off points, including Baskervilles in Palmers Green, the Kings Head in Winchmore Hill and Millfield House in Silver Street, Edmonton.

There are many old fruit trees in people's back gardens throughout Enfield borough. These are of interest to the Community Orchard at Forty Hall Farm, who will try to identify them. You can get in touch via the orchard's Facebook page or by emailing .
