Help to Save Deen City Farm

Help to Save Deen City Farm

Much-loved Deen City Farm urgently needs support to stay afloat and keep the animals cared for until they are able to open again, hopefully in 6 weeks time.

The urban community farm has come under enormous pressure during both Covid 19 lockdowns. As a local charity that has been a cherished family attraction for 40 years, it is reliant on donations from visitors throughout the year – without visitors it simply cannot survive unless it receives extra financial support.

During the first lockdown, Deen City Farm launched a desperate appeal to save the farm and they were overwhelmed by all the generous donations received. Unfortunately, having had to close once again with the latest lockdown, they are once again running out of money to feed and look after their animals.

It costs approximately 30k a month to house, feed and look after all the animals and maintain the five-acre site. These costs include:

  • £30 for food and bedding for all of the sheep for a week
  • £50 to feed the resident pigs for a month
  • £10 for food and bedding for one of donkey
  • £20 to feed the chickens and ducks for a week

 

It would be an unbelievable loss to the community to see Deen City Farm disappear; petting and feeding the animals gives so much joy to local families, along with the horse riding that benefits so many. So please donate generously, let’s get Merton’s lovely local farm through this tough time and ready to open its gates once again this Spring.
