Due to lockdown regulations the farm is now closed until restrictions are lifted
We're losing our Leicester City Council funding, and as of 2021 we will receive no Council funding. We desperately need your help to continue to keep one Leicesters oldest farms running.
It was one of a number of organisations who were selected for an initial dramatic cut in funding from the Leicester City Council which will then stop altogether by March 2021. The farm relies on the funding along with the low admission charges for its continued survival.
The farm has been open in Leicester since 1985 when a group of 30 local residents transformed overgrown allotments off Anstey Lane into the farm that now occupies this site.
Over the last two years, the Staff and Trustees have been working on ways to improve the farm’s sustainability to enable us to secure the much needed income to keep the farm successful. These improvements are ongoing and we are continuously trying to think up new ways of helping to increase our revenue.
The Staff and Trustees, who run the farm, are desperately trying to raise enough funds to keep the farm open so that they can continue to support school visits and offer a fun and educational day out for members of the public. We truly believe that with your generous donations we can overcome our current situation and work towards a brighter future for Gorse Hill City Farm.
