Camden Town Farm
Camden Town Farm, located on Exeter Street, Camden, was originally a 52 hectare dairy farm that was bequeathed to the local community by the late Miss Llewella Davies. It is a unique green space on the flood plain surrounding Camden. The Farm is managed by a Council 355 Committee made up of dedicated local community volunteers.
The Camden Town Farm is also home to the Camden Community Gardens and Fresh Produce Markets.
Miss Llewella Davies Community Gardens: The Gardens are focused around building community and social inclusion and interaction through a love of gardening. More information can be found at www.camdencommunitygarden.blogspot.com.au or via email
Camden Fresh Produce Markets: Held every Saturday (excluding Camden Show weekend) from 7am-12pm. For more information phone 0477 224 881 or (02) 4680 9001 or visit the Camden Produce Markets website.

Bookings are not presently being taken.
A draft Master and Management Plan for the Camden Town Farm has been developed to outline the range of land uses and activities which aims to expand and target the types of functions and activities, agricultural, community and recreation pursuits that will be held on the Farm, with the aim of continuing to ensure Miss Davies’ wishes are respected and the heritage significance of the property is upheld and sustained.
Whilst it is envisaged that the Farm will be available for functions and community events in the future, bookings are not currently being taken whilst the Masterplan is finalised and development approval is sought for the range of activities and events as outlined in the draft Masterplan.
