Mudchute Farm

Author: Alexandra Boyarskaya London, United Kingdom


All parks are pretty much the same, except for this one. A study was conducted in London 30 years ago proving that the majority of children think that a steak grows in a plastic packaging at a supermarket and they don’t know the difference between a cow and a goat. To fill the blank spots of education of the young generation, a couple of dozen city farms were open in London. The farms with kitchen gardens, cows and chickens. Mudchute Farm is the largest of them. Here we have lamas (with sad eyes, long eyelashes and tangled fur), horses, rabbits, 20 types of chickens, huge pigs with piglets, goats and sheep, donkeys and minks. It’s almost like a patting zoo. Usually kids get paralyzed with joy and excitement when they are told they can pat a lama or rabbit. There is a café on the territory of Mudchute Farm but it is so-so. The best farm café is at Hackney City Farm. That place has really delicious food and Jarvis Cocker sometimes visits it.
