The parish of Farcet was established in 1851, having previously been part of the parish of Stanground, its northern neighbour and the vicarage of Stanground included the curacy of the village church.

Farcet has a working men's club called the "The Village Club. The old River Nene flows through it and you can get to the Green Wheel cycling and walking network from it, on the end of St Mary's Street, near the working men's club.

Next to the village (though technically in Huntingdonshire) is Crown Lakes Country Park. The park has a well maintained walkway around several lakes as well as a dedicated area for the very rare Great Crested Newt, Britain's largest newt.
