Kate Humble and Geetie Singh-Watson follow rural businesses through the year. Kate meets a seaweed collector who left an office job for a life working on the beach.

This episode is in Pembrokeshire, following six rural businesses through the key events of their seasonal year.

Pembrokeshire is home to Britain's only coastal national park. Kate Humble meets a seaweed collector who left an office job in Swindon for a life working on the beach and is now running a successful business selling Welsh seaweed products to a global market. Kate also gets stuck in on a dairy farm where they have started rearing Japanese wagyu beef cattle to revive their fortunes. With honey bees in dramatic decline Kate visits a family working to make their living from their hives and she meets the meadow makers who have created a business from harvesting and selling wild flower seeds.

Entrepreneur Geetie Singh-Watson, who set up the UK's first organic gastropub, is with young rookie chocolatiers who are trying to take on the big boys from an old cowshed in west Wales. She also finds out how a Californian radio host and a Welsh farmer have created probiotic goats' milk products that are turning them a big profit from a tiny amount of land.
