For the first time ever Kate Humble allows cameras full access to her farm in Monmouthshire. She bought this little part of Wales over 10 years ago. dreaming of a self-sufficient life, growing her own produce and breeding her own livestock. With the help of her tenant farmer, and mentor, Tim Stephens, Kate has taken to the role of farmer with gusto. From feeding and mucking out to helping deliver the lambs, piglets and calves, she really does put a shift in. In this episode all is looking rosy for Sausage the pig as she starts to give birth, but it’s soon apparent that Sausage’s life, and the life of her unborn litter, are in danger and Kate gets hands on to rescue her animal and the little ones. After a hard day, there is nothing nicer than fishing, and with friend Kim Waters on hand she’s hooked within minutes and planning a simple fish dish. Back in the farmhouse kitchen she rustles up a delicious trout tartare and soda bread baked using stoneground flour from a nearby mill.
Escape To The Farm With Kate Humble is available to watch now on My5.
