Episode 2

Back to the Land is in Yorkshire, meeting mangalica pig farmers Lisa and Tim, an ex-submariner turned lobster fisherman, a sustainable gamekeeper and award-winning glass blowers.

Back to the Land is in Yorkshire, where Kate gets stuck in with mangalica pig farmers Lisa and Tim. When arable farmer Tim met former hairdresser Lisa, she was not content to be ‘just a farmer’s wife’, she was on a mission to introduce animals back to the farm. Tim agreed to purchasing three rare breed mangalica pigs, but they couldn’t be ‘freeloaders’; Lisa’s pigs need to turn a profit and to do that, she needs to get the 450kg beasts to breed - which is easier said than done.

Kate also gets on board with 69-year-old ex-submariner Bob, who upon retirement bought a boat and set about catching lobsters off the beautiful Yorkshire coastline, with a passion to sell the bountiful local catch and sway the public from buying imported lobster. We also meet a sustainable gamekeeper who sells what he hunts directly to the public, serving his customers deer and game birds as well as cuts of meat, such as venison haunch.

We also meet an award-winning glass-blowing business based in the heart of the Yorkshire Moors, founded by a husband-and-wife team, drawing inspiration from the beauty of their rural surroundings.
