Accidental Farmer

Comedy drama. After buying a rundown farm to spite her boyfriend, high-powered executive Erin Taylor decides to make a go of it, not realising the many pitfalls of farm life.

Comedy drama. Erin Taylor is a high-powered, London-based advertising executive who has it all - successful career, stunning flat and a gorgeous boyfriend, Mike.

Planning every aspect of her life, nothing takes Erin by surprise until she dramatically discovers Mike isn't all she thought he was. She takes revenge by abusing his credit card and buying, among other things, a rundown farm in Yorkshire. With Mike's scorn ringing in her ears, Erin decides to make a go of it - how hard can it be to run a farm?

Little did Erin realise she'd be sharing a bed with Olive, an octogenarian sitting tenant, or fending off Clive, the inebriated handyman. She also has to put up with being shouted at by Judith, the horsey neighbour, and ends up embarrassing herself in front of Matt, the dishy vet. Neither did she realise she'd end up living with a piglet.

Erin never imagined just how much work she'd have to muck in with and the difficulty involved in adapting to an entirely new, rural life.
