A global investor tells Charlotte Smith there's no future for small dairy farms in Europe.
Detlev Schorn, partner at Aquilla Capital, manages a multi million euro fund investing in agriculture. But while he is investing in the dairy sector in New Zealand, he says he wouldn't put money into British farms.

Plus are London Farmers' Markets a lucrative business in cities? Charlotte visits Swiss Cottage Market in London to see if it's worth the trip for farmers.

And the rise of snail farming... Breeder Helen Howard tells Charlotte there's a growing demand from British smallholders and diners.

Presented by Charlotte Smith. Produced by Clare Freeman in Birmingham.
