Jimmy’s Farm in the heart of Suffolk

Jimmy’s Farm became a household name when the BBC made a documentary about Jimmy Doherty’s farm near Ipswich in Suffolk.

This rare breed’s farm is open to all and offers a wonderful taste of the rural life that Suffolk is so famous for. 

Visitors to Jimmy’s Farm are able to feed the animals from bags of food provided by the farm. This is an excellent opportunity to get up close to the sheep, goats, donkeys, chicken, rabbits, ducks, cows, pigs and many more who live on the farm. Making the place a must visit for any animal lover!
