Denbighshire

<<    Season: 29, Episode: 13    >>

Synopsis

Matt Baker and Ellie Harrison visit Denbighshire in north east Wales. Matt spends a day with Daphne Tilley, who was recently awarded an MBE for services to agriculture. Jamie Oliver, the Ritz and the Queen's caterers all buy Welsh lamb from Daphne.

With woodland, wetland and moorland to explore, Denbighshire provides Ellie with some great opportunities for wildlife spotting. She is up at the crack of dawn to witness the spring mating rituals of grouse, before she heads out on to the moorland to monitor adders.

Sean Fletcher meets Sarah Hughes, a farmer whose business blossoms in spring as she has diversified into selling edible flowers.

Adam Henson is in Cumbria at the first college in the country to offer a dedicated sheepdog-handling course.

Tom Heap talks about the future of farming - from a fantastical land of butter mountains and wine lakes, he asks what UK agriculture will look like from outside the European Union.
