Farmers Apprentice Episode 4 – watch online

Episode 4 of Farmers Apprentice – the groundbreaking new web TV series from Farmers Weekly – will be broadcast live tonight at 7.30pm.

In last week’s episode, the 10 finalists were challenged to think and work like a farmer, completing a whole range of different tasks that could make up a typical farming day, including an early morning start in the cow shed.

It wasn’t all muck and wellies though as they needed to muster all their creative flair and knowledge of the industry to impress the judges with their mobile apps.

In this week’s episode, it’s crunch time as the 10 farming hopefuls only have two more tasks to show the judges what they’re capable of.

First up they are challenged to educate a group of 40 primary school children with where food comes from, taking them on an educational journey from farm to fork.

Then it’s down to business in the boardroom, with the presentation of their business plan for a new enterprise at Reaseheath College.

The five-part Farmers Apprentice series follows 10 farming hopefuls at bootcamp as they compete for a £10,000 prize to kick-start their career in agriculture.

All the tasks they encounter reflect real-life farming challenges, from handling livestock and using GPS technology, to navigating a top-of-the range tractor and presenting a business pitch to a panel of high-profile judges.
