We were looking for somewhere to take our baby son for a few hours in the summer and were surprised to find how little there was that was suitable for very little children in the local area. After some research on the internet, we decided to go to Jimmy's Farm which is located just outside Ipswich in Suffolk. SO, WHO IS JIMMY?

Visited the Science Festival on 20th March - found the staff at the farm rude and unpleasant; as the previous reviewer commented, customer service is non-existent. Food in the restaurant overpriced and of average quality. AVOID.

I placed an order mid December and I was advised it would come the following week, infact it was 2 weeks later and delivery was 48hours not the express 24 so had to stay in 2 whole days! When the order did arrive part was missing and part damaged. It took, 1 e-mail, 4 answerphone messages and 5 conversations with 3 different people including Jimmy himself before I have been told I will be refunded the items that were missing and damaged. I am still waiting to me refunded. The meat was the same as from my local butchers but more expensive and the customer service the worst I have ever experienced. I would not recommend purchasing from their own line shop!!!

I have been actively avoiding some of our usual hangouts because heat, crowds and lots of other children don't go well with my heavily pregnant and hormonal self. So it was with trepidation that I agreed to a day trip to Jimmy's Farm with my friend and her daughter. ***What is Jimmy's Farm?*** Since 2002 a production company have filmed the establishment of Jimmy's Farm, a pig farm for rare breeds just outside Ipswich (Suffolk). The eponymous 'Jimmy' is Jimmy Doherty, a friend of ... Read the complete review
