What's on

Puppet show/production by In Toto Theatre

Mudchute Park & Farm has acres of fun for everyone!

We host a variety of seasonal events throughout the year that include our Easter Parade, Summer Open Day, Christmas Fair and Spooky Halloween. Throughout school holiday periods look out for various children's activities down on the farm.

Daily Farm Routine

Day to day schedules on the farm do vary, but to help you plan your visit and catch our animals getting their breakfast or supper, our typical daily routine can be found below.

9am-9:45am Animal Feeding Time
9:15am-9:30am Sheep are turned out to the fields
3pm-4pm Animal Feeding Time
3:15pm-3:30pm Sheep move back to their home for the night

While this is our usual routine, times are subject to change.
When our flock of sheep are on the move, please ensure you view them from a distance. Be sure to clear the path and listen to the farm team, so not to get in the way of the wooly stampede!
