Escape to the Farm

As Kate Humble’s farm celebrates its 10th anniversary year, it is time to look ahead. Packed with piglets, sheep, cows and wildlife, this special place has Kate’s heart, and she is determined to ensure it has a secure future.

Join Kate as she visits innovative farms that could help in her mission. From showing cows to growing tea, there's lots to learn. Along with walking, foraging and cooking in the sun, wind and even rain!

Today Kate visits a farm in Shropshire which faced many of the same challenges in making a small farm pay. At Fordhall Farm they have found that selling meat direct to customers offers them the sort of returns Kate can only dream of. Might it be worth following in their footsteps and investing in a direct selling business to make more of the farm’s existing flock of sheep?

Making the farm more profitable is one way to secure its future, but maintaining it and continually improving it is another, so Kate is investing serious money in a new area for her beloved pigs. A new, cleaner area for them will ensure their welfare at the highest standard and help with feed costs.

Kate’s farming life is more than all work – she’s also taking us on one of her favourite walks to meet a very special bird, foraging for edible freebies and cooking her own home grown asparagus for the very first time.
