Jimmy's Farm and Wildlife Park

Jimmy's Farm and Wildlife Park is located at Pannington Hall Lane, Ipswich, Suffolk IP9 2AR

Situated in the heart of Suffolk, Jimmy’s vision was to start a livestock farm using traditional, free-range meat production practices rearing British rare-breeds. The Essex Pig company was born and, in addition to the working farm and butchery, is now home to a Wildlife Park, Restaurant, vegetable and flower gardens, farm shop and clothing, gift and craft shops.

Jimmy’s passion for wildlife and Britain’s countryside and farming traditions is evident. Sustainable farming and quality meat and food production is at the heart of everything at Jimmy’s Farm.

Noah's Ark Zoo Farm is located at Clevedon Rd, Wraxall, Clevedon BS48 1PG

Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm is a family-owned zoo set on a working farm in 100 acres of beautiful, peaceful North Somerset countryside located just 6 miles to the south of Bristol.

The zoo was founded by Anthony and Christina Bush, who have lived and worked here together as dairy farmers since 1962 when the original Moat House Farm was part of the Tyntesfield Estate. The couple first opened Noah’s Ark as a farm visitor centre in 1999 and it quickly became a favourite day out for visitors. It has since grown to become an award-winning zoo and one of the most popular visitor attractions in Somerset.  

Opening for its first season as Noah’s Ark Farm Centre in 1999, visitors were able to get hands-on with bottle-feeding lambs and getting up close to both farm animals and exotic animals such as llamas, camels and wallabies. Tractor rides and playing in the hay barn were popular activities as they still are today.  

Sustainability and conservation are foundational to everything  at Noah’s Ark. This includes education through  daily Keeper Talks, education workshops and regular fundraising events for animal conservation charities.

Educational field trips are a great way to learn and a day out at Noah's Ark Zoo Farm can provide learning opportunities for all ages and abilities. Our education programme is accredited by the Council for Learning Outside the Classroom and the education material reflects the content of the National Curriculum.

They offer a comprehensive range of workshops, delivered with a hands-on focus which offers the opportunity to meet exciting live animals up close. Our wide variety of teaching sessions and learning resources are designed to help you communicate the National Curriculum in a fun, exciting environment.

You can see:   Bagot Goats, British White Cattle, Whitefaced Woodland sheep and Tamworth pigs amongst more exotic creatures.

Spitalfields City Farm is the nearest city farm to the City of London’s square mile. Despite this, we are located in one of the most densely populated wards of Tower Hamlets. We work with a vibrant and multi-cultural community to provide educational opportunities for children and adults alike, to empower people to gain new skills, confidence, to combat social isolation.

Small yet ambitious, we accomplish a lot with a little, which is an even greater challenge at the moment, given the food poverty and cost of living crisis.

The farmyard is at the centre of the farm, and home to many much loved animals and great characters. You can see a few of our farm animals below and click on their photos to read about their personalities.

Animal care and welfare is at the heart of everything we do. Our animals help us to educate and increase awareness of the health and welfare issues for pets and food producing animals.

We aim to:

  • Manage the farmyard demonstrating best practice in animal welfare.

  • Promote animal care and welfare.

  • Provide information to explore farming practices past, present, and future.

  • Provide training in animal care and to signpost to further resources.

  • Provide access to animals and provide animals for the community.
