The penultimate episode of the series about the new generation of farmers focuses on young people who don't come from farming backgrounds but are determined to get into the business. Bunny is petite, young and feminine; she may not look like a farmer but she knows how to drive a tractor, cart corn, deliver lambs and judge stock. She was voted 'most likely to be a farmer's wife' at school but her dream is to become a farmer in her own right and own her own one day. Henry from the Cotswolds is a full-time shepherd who oversees a flock of 500 ewes with the help of his two sheepdogs and his very own shepherd's crook. The programme follows him as he guides his lambs from the birthing shed to the supermarket.
