Farm Sunday's going well at Brookfield, while the Grundys await their first visitor. Joe visits Brookfield and, seeing how well they're doing, makes out it's the same at Grundys' Field. When Joe reports back, Eddie comes up with a plan - inducement. Eddie goes to Brookfield and gives out vouchers for a cut-price strawberry tea. When Ruth confronts him, he admits their event's a disaster but his plan works and soon they're pulling in the crowds too. Clarrie knows they're making no profit. Eddie's confident they'll make enough promoting the cider club and from the ferret racing.

David's surprised that Brenda and Tom visit the farm, considering they're moving into 1, The Green. They've left Mike and Tony moving stuff in for them, so Brenda's not worried, and their house-warming is next week. Ruth feels a bit too old for this and David jokes that she'd better not be - he's arranged a big bash for her birthday. Ruth insists she wants to celebrate her 40th quietly at home.

As David and Ruth wave off their last visitor, their faith has been restored. The public have left David feeling that they're not doing such a bad job after all.
