Ipswich Tips

Jimmys Farm - Follow the TV series & had to go & see for ourselves! Easy to get to via A14 & well signposted. Very admirable venture, it is a lovely setting, there are pigs galore – very cute, the farm is much smaller than it appears on TV but is as disorganised as in they’re missing out on income, e.g. by not “policing” the nature trail (when we were there anyway) entrance to make sure entrants have paid! - Carolyn

Brit Quote:
Most people perform well in a crisis - when the spotlight is on them; it's on the Sunday afternoons of this life, when no-one is looking, that the spirit falters. - Alan Bennett
