BBC2 Farming / Smallholding Series - Looking for Applicants

News Date: 29.03.2010

Splash Media is currently looking for applicants for a new BBC2 series on smallholding.
 
The series will feature ten couples or pairs (married couples / siblings / friends etc) who would like to grasp the opportunity to change their lives forever and run a farm/small holding.  The programme will see the ten couples learn all the basics they need before decamping to a farm in the beautiful British countryside where they will be challenged in all areas of farm life, from animal husbandry to coping with the unpredictable summer weather.  The series will culminate in the winning pair getting the opportunity to live and work on their own small farm.  
 
They are looking for couples of all ages and relationships (married couples / siblings / friends etc.) who are serious about wanting to change their lives and who will relish farm life.  Whether it’s a love of animals, a passion for gardening, an interest in sustainability and food provenance or a general lust for all things outdoors, they want to hear from anyone who thinks they’ve got what it takes to take on this lifestyle-transforming project. 
 
They are especially looking for people who may already have some experience in working or volunteering with animals, food or nature, just some kind of demonstrated interest that would make them a credible and hopefully successful small holding partnership.  Similarly perhaps there are people caring for animals, providing materials or skills or involved in other capacities in the industry who have not been able to have a small holding amount of land who would relish this project. If people want to apply they need to send an email with their name to farm@splashmediatv.co.uk and an application form will be emailed out.  The deadline for applications is 28th April 2010  .
