This year sees the 20th anniversary of Jimmy’s Farm and Wildlife Park in Suffolk, which started out as a farm for rare breed pigs in 2002. This book will celebrate the journey that Jimmy and his family have found themselves on over the years, and the many animals that now call the farm home.

‘Many seasons have passed since I came here but I can honestly say each and every one, emotionally – and on occasions physically! – has left its mark. To witness the changing of the seasons so closely, to understand how they shape both us and the natural world, will always be the ultimate reward.’

In Tales from Jimmy’s Farm, Jimmy reveals how he made his childhood dream of having his own wildlife park a reality and how he would transform a derelict and forgotten Suffolk farm into an A-Z of the animal world, from anteaters to zebras. Taking us on a journey through the seasons – spring lambs to rutting reindeer, sun-loving meerkats to festive monkeys – Jimmy reveals the ups and downs of a life immersed in the natural world, and explains how we too, wherever we may live, can benefit ourselves and the planet by embracing the remarkable animals around us.

Along with a selection of seasonal recipes and easy conservation ideas, the reader will be transported into the landscape, learn of the practical day-to-day jobs on the farm, and fall in love with the animals through stories and funny anecdotes of where they came from, how they settled in and their impact on Jimmy and his team.

As well as a whole host of other characters, Jimmy will introduce you to:
*Teddy, Tip Tap and Tobias – a trio of tapirs
*Alice and Arthur, the Mongolian Bactrian camels
*Basil, the giant anteater
*Dolph, Mistletoe and Rowan, the resident reindeers
