Forty Hall Farm is an organic farm nestled in the Forty Hall Estate. The farm is run by Capel Manor College and includes the Forty Hall Community Vineyard, the first commercial scale vineyard in London since the middle ages. As well as operating as a local food project, the aim of the vineyard is to bring wine production to the heart of the local community and to champion quality, sustainability, health, wellbeing and community involvement.
10 acres of vines are planted on a south-facing, gravelly plot from which the aim is to make quality still and sparkling wines. The grapes are grown as naturally as possible and the vineyard is moving towards biodynamic standards. Wine is made organically by Will Davenport.
The adjacent Forty Hall & Estate with its Grade I listed Jacobean Manor House with permanent exhibition, an exhibition programme focused on art, ecology and heritage, together with a shop and café, means that Forty Hall is one of a surprising number of vineyards with a stately home nearby.

The best way to get to the vineyard is to take a train to Enfield Town from London’s Liverpool Street Station.
From the station, take a bus or go to Turkey Street and walk (15 mins) or take a cab.
Forty Hall Vineyard is very close to Junction 25 of the M25; there is plenty of parking.
Volunteering opportunities in the vineyard are usually on Wednesday mornings (9.30am-1.00pm) and the first Sunday of the month (10am-1.00pm). Due to staff holidays and reduced capacity over the summer, Forty Hall won’t be taking on any new volunteers for the next couple of months, but do contact them to get on the list.
