“We have literally jumped in at the deep end and bought a farm!
“A reluctant Wife, 2 crazy kids and a Husband with knowledge of farming you could write on the back of a stamp! What could possibly go wrong?!”
Who appears alongside Kelvin Fletcher?
Kelvin appears in the show with his wife, Liz, and their two children – Marnie and Milo.
Like tens of thousands of other Brits in the past year, the family moved to the country to start a new life.
They bought a 120-acre farm on the edge of the Peak District National Park, which they viewers will see them try to get back to its former working glory – despite having zero farming experience.
Their no-nonsense next-door neighbour Gilly will also feature on the show.
Before investing in their own livestock, viewers will see Kelvin and Liz get some hands-on experience with Gilly’s flock of sheep.
Where is it filmed?
The show is of course filmed on Kelvin’s farm which is on the edge of the Peak District National Park.
The six-part series is filmed on their land and the surrounding area.
Fans will be given an insight into Kelvin’s home and how they go about their daily life on the farm with real life footage.
