Busy times at Lower Loxley, as they set up the antiques fair and their pre-Christmas events. Nigel takes time out to get the Seyval grapes picked, with the usual people helping, while Lewis helps Elizabeth hold the fort.
David comes along to help with the grapes, and chats to Nigel as they eat their well earned - and excellent - lunch after a hard morning's work. He tells Nigel about his new soil health initiatives on the farm. Nigel is able to relate to it through his growing knowledge of grape cultivation.
Ed and Mike go to look at some Guernsey cows in Oxfordshire, with a view to buying in-calf heifers for their herd expansion. Much to Ed's surprise Vicky has decided to tag along. After all, she's funding the purchase. She talks non-stop and distracts Mike so much that Ed doesn't take in all the information he needs.
However, when Vicky learns that Robert and Lynda have gone to see Coriander and the baby, she is more worried about her dinner party. She's got everything planned! What is she supposed to do if they can't make it?
