Hills of Promise
A third of Britain's farmland Is hill or mountain. Hill farms produce nearly half our sheep, a quarter of our beef cattle and are vital to our food supply. But hill farmers have been living for generations on the margins of subsistence and many have left to seek a better livelihood elsewhere.
Hill farms cannot compete with lowland farming and foreign imports. Their productivity is limited by a bleak, wet climate, an infertile soil and poor pasture. Narrator PAUL VAUGHAN
