Series 1

Episode 3

Duration: 59 minutes

First broadcast: on BBC Two HDLatest broadcast: on BBC Two HD

It's the group's third week at the farm and they decide to open a restaurant at La Banditaccia, and welcome their first paying customers.

To get some inspiration for their restaurant, some of the group head off to explore the wonders of Florence, and take in the delights of the local food markets. After experiencing the wonders of the Tuscan capital, back at the farm they invite some locals to dinner and offer them a unique take on their home-cooked Italian food, with mixed results.

With the grape harvest done and dusted, attention starts to turn to the farm's next biggest crop, olives. The group are under pressure when they discover that the farm's olive groves are under threat after a fly attack hits the local region.

With a less-than-smooth restaurant opening, and the unpredictable nature of farm life, some start to discover that the experience of rural life is tougher than expected. Show less
