*Sausage* Roll-up to Jimmy’s Farm

Roll up, roll up! It’s Jimmy’s Farm Harvest Festival time!

Just like a string of sausages waiting to be cooked we’re sizzling with excitement for Jimmy’s Farm Harvest Festival. But don’t be misled by the title, previously know as Jimmy’s Farm Sausage and Beer Festival, it occurs mid July at the start of the summer holidays. It’s a two-day festival with the option of camping on a real, working farm.

Jimmy's Farm Harvest Festival

We went last year for the first time with a mixed review (mainly because of the yellow weather warning ruining our play) but this year, knowing the lay of the land and attending with even more friends we’re really excited and praying that the sun shines at this fair weather festival.

Previous videos showcase the lovely location and farm, we’re hoping to recreate this video again this year. Jimmy’s Farm Harvest Festival is a celebration for foodies, music lovers and relaxation. A slow-paced family friendly festival that takes everything in its stride and we’re looking forward to chilling out under the countryside sky.

The festival is actually on Jimmy Doherty’s Farm, where you can eat and drink local produce, dance under the stars and fill your weekend with lots of fun activities for children. Jimmy Doherty is a TV personality and is best known for Channel 4’s Food Unwrapped and a BBC2 series called ‘Jimmy’s Farm’.

We’re actually looking forward to the camping this year, if we can camp through last years antics we can camp through anything! We hope lessons are learnt from the festival organisers and the weather behaves itself.

These are the top things we’re looking forward to this year. In no particular order I hasten to add 😉

  • Watching Mr Bloom on the main stage
  • Chilling out listening to Newton Faulkner & Reef
  • Eating different types of sausages
  • Drinking all the amazing flavours of cider *my folks that is!*
  • Watching the fabulous circus performance by the Flying Seagulls
  • Animal petting and pond dipping on the farm
  • Watching the cooking demonstrations
  • Storytelling with farmer JB Gill  (previously in boy band JLS)
  • Oh, and how could we forget Chas & Dave!!
