In Lincolnshire, Ellie kicks back in a bar where it’s not drinks on the menu but clouds! Meanwhile, Adam looks at what Brexit could mean for our farmers.
We’re in Lincolnshire where Ellie is kicking back in a bar where it’s not drinks on the menu but clouds! Visitors to this 'cloud bar' are encouraged to looks to the skies, spot a few clouds, and let their minds drift. Ellie also sees how eels are being used to combat the threat from invasive signal crayfish. Matt looks at a new way of managing the county's grass verges that benefits not just wildlife but the farming community too. There’s another of Adam’s looks at what Brexit could mean for our farmers, and he’s joined by Charlotte at the Food and Farming Awards where they’ll be announcing this year’s Countryfile Farming Hero. And Tom looks at whether funding art in the countryside is really worth it.
On The Verge
Matt discovers a novel way of looking after the local wildflowers and wildlife hidden within Lincolnshire’s verges.
A new invention being trialled is a 'suction verge harvester', which, as well as cutting the verges also sucks up the grass as well.
It’s believed this will prevent delicate wildflowers from being smothered.
This year's finalists are:
Sian Jordan, who has overcome huge challenges to realise her dream of farming the land.
Nigel and Helen Dunn, who have given a home to more than 80 foster children.
Emma Picton-Jones,who has turned the tragedy of her husband's death into new hope for farmers struggling with mental health issues.
But who will be this year's winner?
