Pannington Hall Farm Wherstead
Jimmy's Farm, just on the outskirts of Ipswich, we visited one overcast Sunday afternoon, there were plenty of visitors and the barbeque was alight.
A really nice atmosphere, children and adults both thoroughly enjoying themselves.
Jimmy's Patchwork Pig
When Jimmy Doherty started his rare breed pig farm two years ago, his vision didn't stop at just pigs. He wanted to create an environment where everyone could learn about farming, food and nature, enjoy the changing landscape through the seasons and generally escape from every day life. Now, after months of clearing, cutting and making paths, the Essex Pig Company's Woodland Trail and Animal Paddock at Jimmy's Farm is complete!
Families can now wander round the meadow where the animals are housed, feeding and stroking the chickens, sheep and ducks. At the bottom of the meadow are three large ponds fed by a stream, one for the ducks, one for fish and another set up for pond dipping. The 30 acre woodland itself is mainly hazel and sweet chestnut coppice - great for nuts in the autumn. The paths wind through the woodland taking people under branches over logs and through areas casting beams of dappled sunlight. Spring will offer a sea of bluebells where the magic of an ancient woodland truly comes to life.
