Farmers Apprentice – watch episode 4

There are just two days left until the winner of Farmers Apprentice is revealed.

Hundreds of people tuned in for episode four of the ground-breaking new web TV series from Farmers Weekly – which you can now view online

In this week’s episode, our 10 farming hopefuls are challenged to educate a group of 40 primary school children about 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 the contestants 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.

The winner will be revealed on Thursday 20 December at 7.30pm.
