More Information about Jimmy Doherty
Jimmy is one of the UK’s best known farmers. His journey started over 15 years ago when he took on a leasehold of a 100 acre farm just outside Ipswich which was followed in a BBC series called ‘Jimmy’s Farm’. Jimmy hasn’t looked back since and Jimmy’s Farm now has an award winning restaurant, a nature trail, a butterfly house and holds numerous science and food festivals throughout the year.
Jimmy has recently been seen on Channel 4 fronting ‘Spring at Jimmy’s Farm’, a hugely successful series following the day to day work at his wildlife park during lockdown. This series will return later this year for ‘Autumn at Jimmy’s Farm’. Jimmy also filmed a two part series called ‘Jimmy’s Big Bee Rescue’ earlier this year which went live on Channel 4 this summer. He is also one of the presenters on the hit series ‘Food Unwrapped’ which sees him travel all around the world looking at the science of food production. He also co-hosts ‘Jamie and Jimmy’s Friday Night Feast’ which is now in it’s seventh series and will be shown later this year on Channel 4.
His other credits include ‘Escape to the Wild’, ‘Jimmy’s Australian Adventure’ , ‘The World’s Best Diet’, ‘Food Prices: The Shocking Truth’ all on Channel 4, two series of the hit show ‘Jimmy’s Food Factory’ and ’Jimmy and the Wild Honey Hunters’ both for BBC1, ‘Jimmy’s Global Harvest’ for BBC2 and ‘Crop to Shop – Jimmy’s Supermarket Secrets’ for BBC1.
