Last week, Series 3 of the massively popular, award winning This Farming Life was back on our screens and judging by the reviews to date, it’s even better than ever!
Our This Farming Life journey began in September 2017 when a friend tagged us in a Facebook post that said ‘BBC are looking for new farmers and crofters for the next series’. We don’t have a TV so we’ve never actually seen the programme but it sounded like an interesting opportunity so we fired off an email and left it at that.
After a short screen test and a 3 month wait we got a call from the producer Jane in early January 2018 saying ‘we really want you to be a part of the next series and can we come and film you next week’. Yikes was our initial response swiftly followed by YES!
And that was the beginning of our 9 month filming adventure. You’ll see us say goodbye to our first pigs, welcome our first cattle, sheep and bees and build our Eggmobile. It will offer an insight into the highs and lows of starting up in farming where we work with our animals, our land and our environment to produce the best food.
And why the programme? Well, we just want to share what we do because it’s quite a special world we live in and the more we can reconnect with it (and the more we can help others to reconnect with it), then all the better.
We’re a little nervous about being on the tele, so if you see us out and about and you’ve enjoyed watching Team Lynbreck, feel free to stop us and let us know.
