My Dream Farm charts the progress of six brand new farmers in their first year of working the land, aided and abetted by gardening and farming guru, Monty Don. With over thirty years of farming experience, Monty is the ideal mentor, helping the new smallholders avoid the perils and pitfalls that beset such projects in their early days. The six smallholders are all farming in different ways: from Alpaca breeding to flower farming, from growing orchards to keeping rare-breed pigs. With Monty s assistance they learn what it will take to make their farm a success, with help, advice and inspiration from different experts in their fields. Through three farming seasons, Monty helps them to take their product from the field to the consumer, offering support and challenges to help them on their way. At the end of the process he judges whether or not they have what it takes to survive as a smallholder.
