First Time Farmers

About this programme

4/5. The documentary focuses on the stories of young people who don't come from farming backgrounds but are determined to get into the business. Bunny Sear from Bedfordshire is a first-year student at the Royal Agricultural College in Gloucestershire and already knows how to drive a tractor, cart corn and judge stock. Shepherd Henry Riley from the Cotswolds oversees a flock of 500 ewes with the help of two sheepdogs, while Somerset-based Will Gardner must learn how to take care of the cows during calving season when his boss injures himself.
