We've been a working farm for over 250 years and in the late 1980s were saved by a group of local people who wanted to protect this beautiful green space from being turned into another housing estate around the expanding ‘New Town’ of Cwmbran. Over 30 years on and we are proud to stand strong as a vibrant working farm which opens its gates to welcome visitors from far and wide. Set in over 80 acres, we have a wide range of pedigree and rare breed animals which you can come and meet up close. Daily activities* include milking demonstrations and tractor and trailer rides and we have lots of additional activities during school holidays as well as seasonal events throughout the year.

Friends of the Farm
Friends of Greenmeadow Community Farm is a charity established to fundraise and support the Farm. Our aim is to support and help to enable improvements to the farm whilst at the same time bringing the community together.
A working farm for over 250 years, Greenmeadow was ‘rescued’ over 30 years ago by a passionate and enthusiastic group of local people. They decided to buy the Farm and turn it into a Community Farm to ensure that it would remain a green space for the town and to provide a service to local people and visitors alike.
Memories of the Farm
We are keen to catch people's memories of Greenmeadow Community Farm throughout the ages. Our aim is to build a bank of stories and comments that will help to create a complete picture of life at the Farm.
We are proud to be home to a number of animals both traditional farmyard and others from further afield. As a visitor to the Farm you can get up close and personal with most of our animals and enjoy feeding some of them with animal feed available to purchase from our shop.
Occasionally you can purchase Greenmeadow produce including pork, lamb, honey (produced by hardworking bees base right here on the Farm), eggs & apple juice. The availability of these items is limited and dependent on the season.
Without the work of volunteers Greenmeadow Community Farm would not be the thriving and busy place that it is today. You may be surprised to know that it's not just the animal care that we need help with ... there's a lot more going on on the farm and behind the scenes such as gardening and grounds maintenance, catering, retail, marketing and events.
Working with the Community
We are delighted to work closely with many different community groups, including Gwent Guild of Weavers, Spinners & Dyers, Farm Friends & Green Wellies and Ceffyl Du Carriage Driving for the Disabled. If you belong to a local community group and would like to get involved, please contact us.
