Keep It in the Family - Forest Farm


Twenty-eight-year-old Sarah manages a busy delicatessen in Glasgow's trendy West End, but now the future of her family's 400-acre dairy farm in Kent rests squarely on her shoulders. The farm was established in the aftermath of the war by Sarah's 98-year-old grandfather Robert, who still lives on the estate. Her 57-year-old father, Gordon, who is recovering from illness, wants to establish who, if anyone, will take over the farm. Sarah has a week to learn about milking, feeding, animal husbandry and the day-to-day running of the business before going it alone to see if country life can compare with the city. But will she be prepared to move 400 miles away from her current lifestyle, job and her friends in order to keep the family business alive?
