Next Episode of This Farming Life is
Season 3 / Episode 2 and airs on 20 February 2019 20:00
A series following the struggles and triumphs of six very different farming families in some of Scotland's most beautiful and remote landscapes.
In Appin, David is beset by pests, and out on the hill his lambs are under threat from predators. In the Highlands, Robin and Penny makes use of the fine weather to cut peat, a cow undergoes open stomach surgery at the Roans' dairy farm, and Stevie decides to give his retired bull 007 a new assignment.
The sun is out and in the south of Scotland dairy farmers the Roans are struck down by silage fever; Janet and Alastair take a road trip to the mainland and find something very unusual in a group of young female sheep; crofters Robin and Penny's hopes for making money rest on sales of meat and pies at the biggest local food event of the year; and Stevie test-drives his new burger grill at Perth Races Ladies' Day.
It is midsummer and, in the final episode of the series, David and Sandra have to shear the sheep and start to train a month-old foal. Dairy farmers Stuart and Aylett Roan take a break from the cows to prepare for piglets, Robin and Penny's hay harvest is threatened by the weather, and Stevie reveals big plans for the future of his buffalo business.
As the new year begins, we meet three new farming families – father-and-son team Raymond and Johnny Irvine, Shetland sisters Kirsty and Aimee Budge and the Rodgers family in Co Down, Northern Ireland - and buffalo farmer Stevie Mitchell returns.
New entrant crofting couple Lynn and Sandra send their first pigs to slaughter. Raymond's best bull Major is injured in a brawl. The Rodgers hopes of Balmoral show hang on a clear TB test and buffalo farmer Stevie goes shopping in Holland.
Inspectors arrive to check Raymond and Johnny's subsidy claim. Kirsty and Aimee gather the flock in from St Ninian's Isle. Lynn and Sandra host their first workshop at the croft. The Beast from the East wreaks havoc on Stevie's buffalo farm.
