Abstract:

It is late autumn and the farmers are on the move. In the west of Scotland in Argyll, husband-and-wife sheep farmers George and Sybil set off to gather in their sheep from over six square miles of rugged mountainside. It is an emotional day when Sybil has to then take some of them to market. In the east of Scotland, soon-to-be-wed couple Martin and Mel introduce their newly purchased rams to their flock of ewes - but has Mel chosen well? They also visit the humanist celebrant who will perform their wedding to try and agree on their wedding vows. In the far north, beyond Inverness, John heads to market to teach his 13-year-old son James how to buy a good flock of ewes. It's pay day for Martin who also travels to an auction mart, taking his best four bulls to sell - but things don't quite go to plan. Sandy sets off on a 1,600-mile roadtrip from his home on the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides around the UK to sell his specialist Hebridean mutton and beef. In London, John is a finalist at the prestigious Sheep Farmer of the Year awards.
