Feast on Jimmy's Farm - Harvest at Jimmy's 2010 music event to put a smile into September
Yes, you read correctly - a proper fully-functioning farm being featured on Allgigs. Pourquoi? (or should that be pork-quoi?). Has the local pig herd formed an acting group with Kevin Bacon? Have the potato-pickers formed a Hot Chip tribute band? Or are the resident chickens collaborating with Jarvis Cockerel? OK, OK, before I get my coat, I'll tell you about one Jimmy Doherty, a farmer from Suffolk.
He runs a foodie-paradise near Ipswich, specializing in outdoor-bred rare-breeds of pig, cow, sheep and goat, giving them a healthy and contented life before they turn into chops, sausages and steaks. The farm also holds plenty of local food events but, now for 2010, Jimmy's Farm will host a music festival with a difference. On the 11th and 12th September, 'Harvest at Jimmy's 2010' welcomes musical attractions The Zutons, Newton Faulkner, The Futureheads, Kate Rusby, Jo Whiley (presumably DJ-ing not singing) and Kitty Daisy and Lewis.
Tickets are on sale now at £32.50 for each day (it's on a Saturday and Sunday) or you can stump up for a £60 weekend ticket minus camping (£85 WITH camping). Kids aged between 6 and 17 can get in for around 30% of the adult prices.
But, that's not all. As well as the aural delights being offered, your taste-buds can be tickled by The Hairy Bikers (not sure if that was the best choice of words) and, the man who is sure to encourage clenched bottoms amongst the animals on the farm, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall who brings his River Cottage roadshow (and a full set of sharpened knives) to the proceedings. Michelin-starred Mark Hix and Angela Hartnett complete the menu.
Reckon they could have added Wild Beasts, Foals and Audio Bullys to the bill [and Barclay James Harvest? - Ed].
