Welcome to Hogacre!

Hogacre Common is a fourteen acre site less than a mile from the centre of Oxford and within its fertile flood plains. Bounded by streams on three sides and only accessible by foot, it features field, woodland and aquatic habitats and hosts low carbon community activities and events.

Activities, events and projects are made possible by members of the local community. There are lots of ways that you can get involved too. Just let us know what you would like to do.

What’s on?

 Hogacre Cafe – Open every Sunday till October 12.00-17.00

Come and enjoy a freshly made, locally-sourced lunch or cream tea in beautiful countryside surroundings, just 15 minutes walk from the city center!


 Oxgrow – Hogacre’s Community Allotment – every Sunday from 13.00

Bees: One of our colonies divided and swarmed into a nearby tree earlier in the week and thanks to quick action on the part of the bee group seem to have been happily rehoused in another hive on site. Photos to follow.

We bought a baler! Now we can make hay bales from the meadow grass and put it to use e.g. for building, animal feed etc. But we’ll need your help to pay for it (pay back the loan). More to follow!
