Jimmy's Farm Diaries

About the Show

About the Show

Jimmy Doherty has given up the rat race to realise his dreams of renovating a crumbling farm and breeding rare pigs. Jimmy’s Farm Diaries continues to follow his trials and triumphs on the farm and reflects on the highs and lows of the last three years. His aim to turn a derelict farm into a thriving business was certainly a tall order. He may have over 500 rare breed pigs and produces top quality pork but the process hasn't exactly been straightforward, as behind-the-scenes footage shows. Creating a balance between letting the pigs roam free and having control over the farm meant overcoming problems with boundaries, bureaucracy and a fast dwindling budget. Overall this series is a chance for Jimmy to look back over his first three years as a pig farmer, and tell us his favourite moments, worst mistakes and what he has learned. Jimmy’s Farm Diaries is a fascinating, funny and sometimes moving story about trying to do the right thing.
