Welcome

Greenslate Community Farm, built for the community by the community. 25 acres of farm and woodlands on the side of Billinge Hill on the outskirts of Wigan.

Shop and Cafe Opening Hours

The Straw Bale Cafe and Farm Shop are now open again after an extended Christmas break. Opening hours are Wednesday to Saturday, 11am to 4pm.

We have been busy over the holiday period and have some exciting announcements.

The Farm Shop

The Straw Bale Farm Shop stock fruit and vegetables grown on the farm when they are in season. We also stock local, healthy and ethical products wherever possible.

The Care Farm

Our care farm has been established for over three years now and offers placements that centre around the meaningful activities of our working farm.

Our Animals

The animals have a very special place on our farm. 

Food Growing

Growing food at Greenslate Farm has always been on the agenda. The farm was started by Billinge and Orrell Transition Group and one of the aims of the movement is to make the local community more resilient and self sufficient.
