The farm was established in the nineties by a group of committed locals under the guidance of Gloucester City Council. On April 1st 2011 The Friendship Café, an established registered charity, took over the management of the site to continue the great work on the farm.
Along with a fantastic group of dedicated teenage volunteers aim is to keep the farm afloat and make it even better than it has been in the past. To achieve this they rely on the dedication and experience of the farm staff and volunteers, the strong community links provided by The Friendship Cafe and GymNation, and generous donations from the public and others. Many changes have taken place including a riding school, an active growing group and a coffee shop.
In 2015 the farm received a Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.
