Tales from Jimmy’s Farm

Pre-order your copy now

This year sees the 20th anniversary of Jimmy’s Farm & Wildlife Park in Suffolk, which started out as a farm for rare breed pigs in 2002. This book will celebrate the journey that Jimmy and his family have found themselves on over the years, and the many animals that now call the farm home.

In Tales from Jimmy’s Farm, Jimmy reveals how he made his childhood dream of having his own wildlife park a reality and how he would transform a derelict and forgotten Suffolk farm into an A-Z of the animal world, from anteaters to zebras. Taking us on a journey through the seasons – spring lambs to rutting reindeer, sun-loving meerkats to festive monkeys – Jimmy reveals the ups and downs of a life immersed in the natural world, and explains how we too, wherever we may live, can benefit ourselves and the planet by embracing the remarkable animals around us.

Along with a selection of seasonal recipes and easy conservation ideas, the reader will be transported into the landscape, learn of the practical day-to-day jobs on the farm, and fall in love with the animals through stories and funny anecdotes of where they came from, how they settled in and their impact on Jimmy and his team.

As well as a whole host of other characters, Jimmy will introduce you to:

*Teddy, Tip Tap and Tobias – a trio of tapirs
*Alice and Arthur, the Mongolian Bactrian camels
*Basil, the giant anteater
*Dolph, Mistletoe and Rowan, the resident reindeers

Jimmy’s new book, Tales from Jimmy’s Farm, will be out in October. You can pre-order your copy now on Amazon:

So this year we celebrate our 20th year at the farm!

It’s been a bumpy ride but one I never regret and would do a million times over.

We have lots planned this year from new animals, new adventure play, revamped enclosures and lots of collaborations.

To mark our 20th year I’ve published this book with the wonderful guys at headline books.

It’s the story of how we went from a pig farm to wildlife park!

I’d like to thank everyone in my team – but most of all, the biggest thanks goes to my beautiful, wonderful wife Caela – without her nothing would have been possible.
