Episode 4

In Cornwall Kate meets Giel, who decided to turn his grandmother's gouda recipe into a business after his family had to put their dairy farm up for sale.

This episode takes us back to Cornwall meeting rural pioneer Giel, who six years ago came home from college to find his family's dairy farm up for sale - his parents had hit financial difficulty and were being forced to sell up. With farming in his blood he couldn't bear to see their passion fail, so decided to turn his grandmother's gouda cheese recipe into a business. Kate joins Giel at a crucial point of expansion which if successful could save the family farm and double production to take this business mainstream.

Kate also meets with a couple who swapped Plymouth for the Cornish countryside, setting up one of the few alpaca farms in the UK that breeds them not just for wool, but for meat. We meet Tarquin who, aged 24, set up his own distillery using traditional methods to make gin. And finally, we meet a husband and wife team in Port Isaac who don't just catch crab and lobster for their customers, they cook it for them the very same day in their unique cafe.
