who would have thought there was an entire farmyard of animals, 15 minutes by light train from our house? james and i went to mudchute park and farm today and saw cows, horses, pigs, chickens, sheep, baby goats (who loved having their heads rubbed), turkeys, etc. we managed to find the nature trail and it felt and looked like we were in the english countryside. it was fantastic to enjoy this so close to our home. there was even garden allotments that people could use to plant vegetables and assorted plants. we hope to look into renting one of these allotments in future so we can grow some of our own food!
