About Mudchute

Mudchute Park & Farm. One of the largest city farms in London with 32 acres of countryside in the middle of the Isle of Dogs.

You may have noticed our sheep looking a bit bare. It’s been a week of shearing! Over the past week we’ve shorn our entire flock (except for this year’s lambs). That’s a total of 48 sheep and 2 alpacas that needed their summer shear! Lots of work to do! Some of you may have been lucky enough to catch Derek in action or caught our tweets live from the shearing barn. As happens so often in farming, what started off like quite a simple job ended up taking two days after a slight hitch involving the batteries powering the shears! But it worked out brilliantly as Monday turned out to be a drier and altogether better day for shearing than the wet and windy weather we had on Friday! More photos of our sheep and alpacas being sheared on the next page! Continue reading


Thank you to everyone who made it out to our lovely fundraising banquet last Thursday evening and to the grand opening of the Mudchute Ack Ack Gun and street party on Saturday! It has been a very busy, but exciting few days of festivities and we hope you all enjoyed yourselves (despite the rather variable weather!). The courtyard was beautifully transformed into a gorgeous summery venue! More photos of the celebrations on the next page! Continue reading


You may have noticed an interesting green contraption in the big field last week. This was all part of our set up to give our lovely Irish Moiled cows, Enys and Amaya, a proper check up. A cattle crush is the safest way to work with cattle as it is less stressful for the animals and they are less likely to injure themselves (or any of us!).
