Bill Quay Community Farm Association

Bill Quay Community Farm, tucked away in the east of Gateshead, on the banks of the River Tyne, is a rural haven home to a variety of livestock Old MacDonald would be proud of! The farm has developed into a rare breeds centre with animals including cows, goats, pigs, sheep, chickens and rabbits. The farm is host to an amazing new art trail. Created by local artists, the trail is made up of 25 exhibits all with a farm life theme, as well as a special piece created by local children during the summer holidays. Managed by Gateshead Council and a community management association, the farm was set-up in the mid-1980s to educate and entertain the local community. It is a little jewel in an urban area.
