Young Herefordshire farmers to star in Channel 4's 'First Time Farmers'
YOUNG Herefordshire farmers will play a major role in a new Channel 4 programme about the future of agriculture.
First Time Farmers is a new five-part documentary series looking at all aspects of farming life through the eyes of the younger generation.
Alastair Hunter-Blair from near Ross-on-Wye; Robbie McGuffie, from near Ledbury and Bromyard; and Ed Godsall, from near Ledbury; are among those breathing new life into the agricultural world.
Filmed over a six-month period the documentary will lift the lid on the dilemmas and daily grind of young farmers living in Herefordshire, the Cotswolds and the West Country.
The programme, created by the Made in Chelsea team, shows a career in agriculture is not all work and no play and these young farmers share how they balance socialising and farming commitments.
Alistair appears in episode three which will be broadcast on January 25. The other young Herefordshire farmers will be appear in the first episode broadcast this Friday at 8pm.
