Bill Quay Community Farm is a treasured green space on the edge of Gateshead.
Farming for fun, learning, food and wellbeing, there is always something going on at the farm.
Since the 1st July 2013, the farm has been run by Bill Quay Community Farm Association, and is wholly dependent on charitable giving and community grants for survival.
All of our animals are rare, indigenous breeds. We have award winning Tamworth pigs, three breeds of sheep (Jacobs, Hebrideans and Castlemilk Moorits), endangered Bagot goats and Scots Grey hens. Our beautiful Longhorn cattle are also a firm favourite, and we have many more animals besides.
If you are lucky, you can pick up some fresh farm eggs or some Bill Quay Bangers and bacon
Entry is free.
We rely on donations to keep the farm open, the average visitor donates £2
