This edition visits Cornwall to meet seaweed entrepreneurs Tim and Caro, who run the only company in the UK who free dive to pick their seaweed.

For the first episode, Kate is in Cornwall meeting seaweed entrepreneurs Tim and Caro, who run the only company in the UK who free dive to pick their seaweed. Kate meets them at their most crucial point of expansion - after a tough first few years living in caravans, they are about to move to a new premises, are embarking on cultivating their own seaweed for the first time, and Caro is pregnant with her second child.

Kate also gets stuck in on a duck farm where one couple traded in a haulage company to start rearing a unique breed of ducks for the restaurant trade. We also meet best friends whose home-grown British flowers are taking the high-end wedding market by storm. And we get inspired by one man's mission to turn his passion for foraging and home brewing into a thriving craft beer business.
