Series 1 Episode 5
First Broadcast: 8PM Fri 8 February 2013

Twenty-five-year-old Henry has returned to work on the family arable farm with his dad after studying at college. Henry is in line to be the fifth generation of his family to take over the farm.

He and his dad are a close team, but whereas the farm always comes first for Henry's dad, Henry puts raves and parties higher on his priority list than his dad would like.

Eighteen-year-old pedigree pig farmer Hayley from Dorset has won numerous awards for her champion pigs.

She's been looking after pigs since she was a toddler; she has pig breeding in her blood, and even competes against her dad for the coveted Pig of the Year championship.

And 24-year-old Rob from Wiltshire is a self-employed shepherd. He's determined to make a career out of sheep farming although he comes from a non-farming family.

His goal is to make enough money from one season's sheep shearing to buy his own flock.
