Our much loved donkeys Dissy and Snowflake left Mudchute this morning, swapping London life for a change of pace at the Donkey Sanctuary in Sidmouth, Devon. The mother and daughter pair have been here on the farm with us for over a decade and will be greatly missed by all. While we are very sad to see them go, we know that they will enjoy making new donkey friends in Devon. We would like to thank all who have helped care for them and helped make their time with us at Mudchute so wonderful. These two have made many friends over the years and we know they will be missed, but we are confident that they will thrive at their new home.
It’s a busy week for us on the farm with Easter holidays in full swing and lots of activities taking place at Mudchute Park & Farm. We’re also busy taking some of our animals to greet their public further afield at Westfield Stratford City for the shopping centre’s Easter Kids at the Farm event.
You can see some of your Mudchute favourites as they visit Westfield London’s Chestnut Plaza. Our animals at Westfield include baby lambs, rabbits, guinea pigs, chickens, donkeys and more! We’ll be at Westfield from 11am – 3pm all this week until Saturday, April 6th. Come say hello!
