How to Make a Farmer

Smart technology, match-making websites or reality TV - what would persuade you to be a farmer?

Fancy a career change? If you're not doing it already, what would it take to make you a farmer? Would smart technology, matchmaking websites or reality TV do it?

In our second episode to explore the problem of the world’s ageing agricultural workers Emily Thomas hears about some innovative and surprising attempts to re-brand farming.

Is education or technology the answer, does farming need a re-brand, OR is it just too hard for most farmers to make a living - and does the global food system itself need to change?

It matters - if the farmers die out, where will you get your food in the future?
