Farming Families

Lambing Live, Series 3 Episode 1 of 5

Farming families are the backbone of Britain. Ahead of the next series of Lambing Live, Kate Humble looks at what life is really like for these farmers across the UK, and shares her own fledgling experiences of the farming life.

Springtime is the busiest time of year for sheep farmers, with 16 million lambs expected over the next few weeks. We meet some of the families working hard to put food on our tables. Why do they do it? How does it feel to live and work together day in, day out? This programme revisits farming families from previous series to explore their connection to the land, before heading to Scotland to meet a few of the farmers making a living north of the border and introducing 2014's Lambing Live family - the Dykes.
