Always wanted to own a farm?


Are you sick of the rat race? Wish your life was more Good Life than This Life? Is a day on the allotment your idea of heaven? Think you can run your own business?

BBC is looking for ten couples to take part in a new series that will really put your aptitude for farming to the test. Over six weeks you'll learn how to run and manage your own farm, from animal husbandry and harvesting to coping with the unpredictable British weather. The series will culminate in the winning pair getting the opportunity to live and work on their own small farm. Whatever your background or relationship — friends, married, siblings — as long as you both share that yearning for a life on the farm we want to hear from you.
