It’s a scorcher today as the heat wave continues and the summer solstice as well. Temperatures are set to hit a 40 year high for the month of June. Our Middle White Piglets have moved from their pen in Pets Corner up to a larger pen, which comes with fantastic opportunities to have a wallow. The formerly pink piglets got stuck right in and made the most of the cool mud, which will help keep them cool and safe from the sun! I think they might have the right idea in the heat!
Looking for our goats? Our herd have moved from their shady enclosure at the centre of the farm to the corner field opposite our chickens. They’ve been enjoying the ample opportunities to sunbathe and more space to greet passing visitors! You’ll also notice the fence on this field has been augmented in preparation for the goats as some of our goats stand rather tall!
Last, but certainly not least, a huge thank you to all of the staff, volunteers and corporate teams who have helped with this work and will be helping with the transformation to come! To find out more about how you and your team can lend a hand at Mudchute, visit our website.
As for their former pen, watch this space!
