Coventry City Farm – Needs financial support

Unfortunately due to financial difficulties the Coventry City Farm has now closed down. See more children farms on Days Out Diary website.

Coventry City Farm

I have previously visited the Coventry City Farm Fun Day 2006, and I have now visited the farm on a normal day.

We visited on Sunday, spending about an hour there with my daughter. The animals at the farm included Goats, Ducks, Chickens, Ponies, Sheep and Pigs, as well as a friendly cat, and a few birds that flew into the farm. We bought some carrots to feed the animals with, they were 50p per bag, and a bag of corn for the chickens at 20p (although the Hens did not come out to eat). We used 3 bags of carrots, which was a reasonable amount to give each of the animals a small amount of food.

We spent about an hour there, which was enough time. On a nice day you could spend longer, by using the children’s play area and perhaps taking a picnic with you, but although dry it was very cold when we visited.

The Coventry City Farm is suffering through a lack of funds at the moment. I had heard that they did not have funds to keep running after the end of of January 2007. Due to support they received then this has now been extended until the end of March, but they are still desperate for more funds. If you are able to give a donation, or know of a company or organisation that would be willing to support the farm then I’m sure they would be very appreciative. If all visitors put a donation in the box then that would certainly help contribute to keeping the farm open and this great resource for the local community.
