Jimmy the farmer
The Essex Pig company was born with the vision of using traditional, free-range meat production practices rearing British rare-breeds.
The first six months was a relentless process of clearing the site, a test of physical labour and endurance, but the farm and farm shop took shape.
Slowly it grew with a team of butchers and workers that maintained some of the best livestock and produce in the country. Our own farm-cured bacon, sausages and pork joints – all from our own herd of rare-breed pigs – were a reality.
After years of hard work, the working farm, farm shop and butchery, are now also home to a Wildlife Park, Restaurant, vegetable and flower gardens, and clothing, gift & craft shops.
Sustainable farming and quality meat and food production remains at the heart of everything at Jimmy’s Farm.
