Sanctuary From Your Sofa: Marvellous Mules

Sanctuary From Your Sofa: Marvellous Mules

17 October 2021 - 14:00 to 15:30

Our award-winning Sanctuary From Your Sofa event is back. Enjoy a virtual trip to Town Barton Farm, situated on the edge of the picturesque Dartmoor National Park.

Join us as we take you behind-the-scenes at Town Barton Farm.

Our farms across the country provide a refuge for donkeys and mules in need. Town Barton Farm specialises in looking after mules and hinnies and trains donkeys and mules looking to take their next steps in life.

As with all of our outlying farms, Town Barton is not open to the public, so this is a unique opportunity to say hello to the resident animals and the fantastic team of people that care for them.

You can watch the videos on this page or via our YouTube channel.

2pm - Welcome to Town Barton Farm (LIVE)

We start the afternoon with an introduction from Farm Manager Paul Carter and his team, who will welcome us to the farm and speak about the vital work that they do.

2.30pm - Life on the farm (Pre-recorded)

The team will be taking us through day-to-day life on the farm, including some fascinating insight into how they produce haylage for their residents.

3pm - Meet our mules (LIVE)
