The lockdown across the world has affected filming and production of a number of TV series and documentaries.
For instance, presenter and farmer Jimmy Doherty was supposed to continue his work on Food Unwrapped and other projects in 2020. However, he has returned on Channel 4 with his documentary Spring at Jimmy’s Farm, filmed with a small team during the quarantine period.
Unsurprisingly, viewers at home are interested to know more about Jimmy’s farm, as well as how to visit once things get better.
Jimmy Doherty: Farm
The TV presenter and farmer owns a 280-acre farm based in Ipswich, Suffolk.
The farm is home to a range of domestic animals, including pigs, sheep and goats, as well as butterflies, rare breeds, camels, reindeers and many more.
During normal openings hours, Jimmy’s farm hosts different events, workshops, weddings and birthday parties. Plus, it also provides activities, safaris and experiences for adults and children.
Tickets are in the range of £7 – £30, while the annual membership costs between £30 – £45.
