Thanks to all who joined us for the unveiling of our new RBST approved farm park sign today! The big reveal was made by celebrity chef and rare breed advocate, Cyrus Todiwala who joined us straight from service at Cafe Spice Naste and still dressed in his whites! He shared the importance of conserving rare breeds from a chef’s perspective. Our lovely new sign can be found in the courtyard outside the farm office. Huge thanks go to our wonderful farm team as well as everyone who has supported Mudchute in making this possible. After the big reveal, we had a tour of the farm in the late afternoon winter sunshine and it was wonderful to share more of our work with Cyrus and find out more about how chefs understand and appreciate native and rare breeds.
Last week the fields of Mudchute were temporarily transformed into #mudderchute, an outdoor obstacle filled course! The event was part of a Tough Mudder event with lots of hardy folks joining to take on the challenges! What a fantastic way to “escape the ordinary”!

It was rather chilly, but beautifully sunny with clear skies and those obstacles must have offered some spectacular views across Canary Wharf, the river Thames and of course the farm!
