Heeley City Farm is built on land that use to be many houses. In the 1960s/70s Sheffield City Council agreed on a controversial by-pass and the landscape changed.
In 1963, Sheffield City Council approved plans for a bypass through Heeley to run parallel to London Road, below Anns Road. Heeley residents realised that this would be a "through-pass" not a by-pass, completely splitting the local community.
Heeley City Farm is open to volunteers from ages 8 upwards. The Farm, our food-growing sites and the Energy Centre simply couldn’t run without the brilliant volunteers who come and work with us everyday so if you’d like to get involved please get in touch! The Farm is also happy to host corporate volunteer days.
Vegetarian and Vegan, home-cooked healthy, tasty and affordable food - 7 days a week from 10am til 4pm.
The Farm Kitchen aims to provide healthy, tasty and affordable home- cooked food and we use as much of our own organic, home-grown vegetables as possible. We promote Fair Trade produce (serving Cafeology Coffee) and uses free range eggs in all the delicious recipes; and our vegetarian chilli, seasonal soups and more-ish cakes have gathered a faithful following.
Freshly made salads, soups and hot and cold specials each day, tempting cakes and treats, and of course Fair Trade tea and coffee.
At the Farm we produce many different things. Depending on the time of year you will find alot of different items you can purchase.
There are no current vacancies.
*** We now have an Amazon Wishlist where you can buy things that the Farm needs for us as a way of donating***
