Farm animals

Our Farm is one of the largest inner City Farms anywhere in Europe. We pride ourselves on our wonderful collection of British rare breeds and currently have over 100 animals and fowl on our farm! We are proud to be London's only Rare Breed Survival Trust's Approved Conservation Farm Park.

Throughout Mudchute Farm's landscape and buildings you will be able to view our British rare breed animals, horses and ponies everywhere. The larger animals graze in the outer enclosures and fields, while the smaller and perhaps more cuddly, are kept just next to the main courtyard in 'Pets Corner'. Please note that most of the animals go to bed at around 16:00hrs.

If you want to learn more about the Farm and the animals, please enquire about booking a Farm Tour. A member of the Farm Staff will take you around the Farm and explain more about our livestock and landscape. You will learn more about how the Farm works, get closer to some of the animals, and maybe even help feed some of them. Tours last about an hour.

Animal encounter sessions can also be booked, in advance, as part of an event or party at Mudchute. Some of our friendliest small animals will be brought to your venue by Farm staff, who can explain more about them, while guests can get up close and stroke their fur or feathers. These sessions are very popular at children's parties.

Select an animal from the menu to the left to find out more about them.

You can also keep up to date on the latest news and developments on the farm via the Mudchute Farm blog.
