Share the good life at Jimmy's Farm

Meet the team at Jimmy’s Farm & Wildlife Park

Situated in the heart of Suffolk, Jimmy’s vision was to start a livestock farm using traditional, free-range meat production practices rearing British rare-breeds. The Essex Pig company was born and, in addition to the working farm and butchery, is now home to a Wildlife Park, Restaurant, vegetable and flower gardens, farm shop and clothing, gift and craft shops.

Jimmy’s passion for wildlife and Britain’s countryside and farming traditions is evident. Sustainable farming and quality meat and food production is at the heart of everything we do at Jimmy’s Farm.

Bring the family and share the good life!

Jimmy & Michaela started farming in Wherstead in 2002
