Autumn at Jimmy’s Farm is heading to our screens to prepare for the new season at a farm and wildlife park. But where is the Channel 4 show’s filming location?
As Jimmy Doherty and his team prepare for the arrival of some new animals, the first episode sees them handling piglets. But they can’t work out why a female tapir has been putting on weight, while they try to contain an escaping meerkat called Steve McQueen.
But where are they looking after the animals? We found out the Channel 4 show’s filming location!
Where is Autumn at Jimmy’s Farm filmed?
- Jimmy’s Farm & Wildlife Park, Ipswich
Yes, that’s right, Jimmy’s Farm is an actual farm in the Suffolk countryside that people can visit. It’s not just being used for a television series!
The full address for the Channel 5 filming location is Pannington Hall Ln, Ipswich, IP9. It has a wildlife park, farm shop, restaurant, tea room, and of course, a farm – and it can be used for birthday party locations!

Who runs the farm?
Jimmy Doherty owns the farm, hence why it’s called ‘Jimmy’s Farm’.
His vision was to start a livestock farm using traditional, free-range meat production practices rearing British rare-breeds. And now he is running his own farm which is being aired on television.
The farm is the operation between the Essex Pig Company that he and his wife Michaela Furney own.
He is also known as a television presenter, formerly for the BBC and now for Channel 4.
Yay!! So excited. I absolutely loved #springatjimmysfarm and cannot wait to see what happens next in Autumn, my favourite season. It’ll be worth watching for the shenanigans from Steve McQueen alone 🤣 #autumnatjimmysfarm pic.twitter.com/d9TvUveCfR
