Back to the Land with Kate Humble

Series 1

Episode 2: South Devon

Duration: 59 minutes

First broadcast: on BBC Two ScotlandLatest broadcast: on BBC Two HD

In the foodie county of Devon, Back to the Land shows just how much graft, love, tenacity and skill lies behind every rural business as we follow six of them through the seasons.

Kate Humble is with a cider and drink makers who are trying to reverse the trend of Devon's apple orchard decline as they plough a six-figure sum into a new orchard on their land. She also follows a farming family who have hooked on to the trend for the UK's answer to olive oil, producing their own cold-pressed rapeseed oil. Kate discovers a young lad with no farming background who is running a modern business with traditional Devon sheep breeds and a couple who have invented a way to make wool rock solid and are creating modern innovative furniture products from it.

Award-winning entrepreneur and south Devon resident Geetie Singh-Watson finds how online shopping is bringing our markets closer together and enabling an edible-flower grower to thrive. And two best mates have left their jobs for a life in the country to turn their passion for European cold meats and build their own charcuterie business in Devon's rich food heritage. Show less
