Down on the Farm

Wednesday, June 15, 2011

Last weekend’s adventures took nature-loving Agnes & Monty to the wonderful Jimmy’s Farm!

Situated in a quiet wooded valley close to Ipswich, the farm is famous for it’s Essex Pigs, the only breed of wild animal that has been brought back from extinction. There is a great variety of farm animals to feed and pet, Guinea Pig Village, a Butterfly house, den building in the woods, a fabulous restaurant – Sunday lunch was a delicious roast pork and crackling – sorry piggies! – followed by “Pigsty Pudding” and “Mud Pie”, and the surrounding grounds have an excellent Kitchen Garden and Veg Plot.

We spent hours at Jimmy’s Farm, it’s a wonderful place to get ‘closer to nature’ for the children, has a great relaxed vibe and with fabulous deli and butchers the parents also get a chance for a little food retail therapy. Our favourite part was wandering through the enchanting Woodland Walk to discover a clearing for Den Building – we told stories, played hide and seek and enjoyed the peace and quiet.

In September (9th-11th) they are running Harvest, a food & music festival – – the line up for foodies, gardeners, parents and children alike looks unmissable. Get your best festival gear and wellies at the ready…We thoroughly recommend a visit.
