The leaves are changing colour and beginning to fall across the farm. Autumn has arrived on the farm! Keep an eye out for the changing leaves with bright golden leaves of lime trees and bright reds of our acers and sorbus. Falling leaves are also a seasonal treat for many of our animals who are partial to a crunchy leaf or too. No need for a leaf blower on the cow field! Dora and Delilah headed straight for the trees when let out this morning, quickly hoovering up the leaves that fell overnight.
It seems like yesterday that we welcomed two tiny Tamworth piglets, but Margot and Mary have grown quickly over the last three months. They have settled into life at Mudchute very well. You can still find them in Pets Corner, but they are rapidly taking on the tall, leggy look of adult Tamworths. Be sure to say hello to these lovely sows when you next visit!
