Hackney City Farm history
Hackney City Farm was established in 1984 with a view to giving youngsters and local people the opportunity to experience farming. In the early 1800s, the site was occupied by farmers and market gardeners supplying fresh produce to the city of London.
But late 1880a brewery occupied the site and beer were brewed which was supplied to its own public houses in Hackney Road and nearby Bethnal Green. The water used in the brewing process was supplied by a well, still, present today (although capped) in the front garden.
Later in 1982 local people formed the farm, and kept a few animals in the nearby Covent gardens. Two years later Hackney City Farm took over its present site and was given one hundred years lease by Hackney Council
