Three families from across the UK ditched the 9-5 in search of a better work-life balance and the experience of a lifetime high in the mountains of Snowdonia, with the help of hill farmer Gareth Wyn Jones and Kate Humble in The Family Farm.
In this four-part series, the Morgans from Tenby, the Burtons from Manchester and the McNulty family from Glasgow are taken out of their comfort zones and pushed to their limits with early starts, late finishes and dirty jobs in all weather conditions on Gareth Wyn Jones’s family hill farm.
The families will have their regular daily farm chores and will live on site in a special tented village. At the same time they will be given a set of challenges, designed to show how our food gets from gate to plate. Each week their efforts will be judged by experts with Gareth and Kate choosing one exceptional individual to receive a shepherd’s crook for their good work.
