Rural crafts like hedge laying, thatching and dry-stone walling have recently been on the decline, leaving a shortage of workers skilled in countryside tasks. But Charlotte Smith hears that more young people are taking to a career in rural Britain and are breathing new life into these dying traditions.

Also, as winter approaches, the Farming Today bees have their final preparations to get them through the cold days and even colder nights.
