Sooty the lamb

Sooty the lamb meeting visitors at Westfield Stratford City.

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.

Petting Rabbits and Guinea Pigs

Young visitors meet our rabbits and guinea pigs.

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!

We’ll be back at Westfield from 11 tomorrow and hope to see you there! In the mean time, find some of our photos from Day 1 at Mudchute on the next page!

They may no longer graze overlooking Canary Wharf, but their view across London is stunning! More photos of their gorgeous new home on the next page! Continue reading
