Our resident reindeer, Minnie and Snowflake have been extremely busy already this year taking part in big Christmas evets to represent their fellow cousins, Donner and Blitzen!
On Thursday 24th November, the farm's little elves and reindeers bought their festive cheer to Mill Hill high street for the Christmas market where all of the fairy lights were turned on and the magic of Christmas was brought to life!
Chhristmas cheer and smiles were also brought to the people of central London whe Minnie and Snowflake ventured out to Mayfair and stood outside the well known prestigious food restaurant - 'Novikov' on Saturday 27th November.
