First Time Farmers returns to screens tonight

The second episode of First Time Farmers is being aired tonight on Channel 4.

The “observational documentary” features a new set of young farmers from a different region every week, following the ups and downs as they try to carve out a career in agriculture.

Tonight’s episode stars three young farmers from Cheltenham and Somerset: 17-year-old Flossy who juggles running the family farm with going to school; 18-year-old Lewis who is in the third year of an agriculture degree and George, who runs a flock of sheep along with a firewood and fencing businesses.

You can watch First Time Farmers tonight at 8pm on Channel 4.
