About the Show

Jimmy Doherty wants to be a pig farmer and make the best sausages money can buy. But he knows less about farming than pigs know about flying. The closest he’s been to animal husbandry is studying insects at university. Jimmy’s Farm is the story of how a 28 year old Essex lad makes a bid to restore the British countryside and bring back traditional food to the public. Follow his trials and triumphs as he gives up the rat race to realise his dream of renovating a derelict Suffolk farm and breeding rare pigs. With a little business advice from his friend Jamie Oliver, city boy turned wildlife enthusiast Jimmy works hard to make the farm a success following his recent additions of a nature trail, a bull and 80,000 bees! Bright, ambitious and engaging, Jimmy continues to smile through some unexpected problems and finds out just what it takes to bring home the bacon.
