JIMMY DOHERTY

Jimmy Doherty (born May 24, 1975) has always been passionate about nature and farming. By the time he was 16, he was the youngest ever Assistant Entomologist at the Mole Hall Wildlife Park, Walden. After gaining a degree in Zoology, Jimmy worked in the Entomology Department at London’s Natural History Museum before moving on to Coventry University where he taught Animal Ecology and Animal Philosophy.

In 2003, Jimmy decided it was time to make his dream of living the good life a reality. He left London and without any experience or prior knowledge of farming, took on a leasehold of a 100-acre farm near Ipswich in Suffolk. His rollercoaster journey to change this derelict farm into a rare breed pig farm was followed in a television series called Jimmy’s Farm.

From there, Jimmy became an established science presenter and his credits include two series of Jimmy’s Food Factory. As a result of his increasing popularity and success, he hosted several other series such as Jimmy’s Grow Your Own Christmas Dinner, Jimmy and the Giant Supermarket and Jimmy’s Forest.

Jimmy has written three books and has launched a number of food products called ‘Jimmy’s Farmers Range’ featuring a variety of sausages.

Each September, Jimmy hosts a food and music festival on his farm called ‘Harvest at Jimmy’s’ and he has also recently opened a restaurant on the farm celebrating quality local produce.


Jimmy married Michaela Furney at a reception held at his farm in August 2009. They have two daughters named Molly Rose and Cora Mae.
