Would you give your neighbours a say in how to run your business? Caz Graham meets farmers who are doing just that, in an attempt to improve their farming and boost profits.

The 'Monitor Farm' project started as a concept in New Zealand, and they have now been running for nine years in Scotland. At a new Monitor Farm in Peeblesshire Caz finds out what farmers Kate and Ed Rowell hope the local farming community will bring to their business.

Presented by Caz Graham and produced by Rich Ward.
