Mistley Park Farm is a sanctuary, over many years they have rescued thousands of animals and birds from slaughter, ill-treatment and neglect or from homes where they are no longer wanted or can no longer be kept.

This Animal rescue centre is home to over 2,000 rescued animals and birds ranging in size from Mice to Shire Horses including Cats and Dogs, in fact most indigenous species. Many of these animals roam around the site freely (where practical and safe).
One of the Farms aim is also to re-home animals and the volunteers at the farm clearly love what they do, with a smile on their faces even the cafe staff are bright and bubbly.
The Cafe is a welcomed stop after exploring Mistley Park and a hot chocolate and lovely home-made food, certainly hit the spot!
Me, my friend and her three-year old little boy spent the day at Mistley Park Farm, but I could have happily moved in!
