Sheep from Surrey Docks Farm

Hungry sheep, snuggly rabbits, thoughtful donkeys and a dopey ferret visited Potters Field Park yesterday.

The animals were from Surrey Docks Farm. The farm runs a mobile farm – a big green van which takes the animals out to make new friends. Children from schools near Tower Bridge were invited to meet the animals. Passing tourists and office workers were equally enthralled.

If you didn’t get to make a new furry friend in Potter’s Field yesterday, the mobile farm will be at Surrey Quays shopping centre on the 24th July. Can’t wait till then? Meet the whole family at Surrey Docks Farm every Tuesday to Sunday.

London has 10 city farms. Which one is your favourite?

    ps. I like Vauxhall City Farm – I’ve spun yarn from the sheep with the spinning group a few times.
