Home to the Essex Pig Company Jimmy’s Farm is the vision of TV Presenter Jimmy Doherty and his wife Michaela and has taken years of dedication and hard work to achieve their dream.
If you followed the TV documentary which saw them turn a derelict farm into a thriving business. Now you can witness the changes for yourself with our exclusive behind the scenes tour of Jimmy’s Farm.
Refreshments of your choice will be served in our converted 200-year old Barn restaurant, which offers breakfasts, brunches, snacks, afternoon teas and delicious meals.
