A Farmer’s Life For Me

LIVING – Sundays from 1 January, 6.30pm

Throwing in the desk job and moving to the country is a typical dream for many urban office workers, sick of the daily grind and rat race. In this new series, Jimmy Doherty joins nine couples as they put their farming skills to the test, competing to win a sensational prize: the opportunity to run their very own farm, surrounded by acres of stunning countryside, for an entire year. Living together, the couples undergo a range of daunting challenges, from sheep herding to butchery, from breeding livestock to creating and marketing their own produce. There’s plenty of muck, mud and mishaps as the couples find out just how difficult it is to run a successful farm. But who will ultimately be crowned the best farmer?
