Farming in Bath

We're celebrating our 20th episode this month!

And it's all about the world of farming.

But first - Lucy Bartlett has just organised Bathscape’s seventh highly popular annual walking festival and she updates us on what to expect this year.

We visit local farmer Bob Honey who talk about his prize herd of Herefords and he's a man knows the difference between a Brown Snout, a Slack me girdle and the ten commandments. He is a cider apple farmer!

Biddy introduces us to her alpacas on her farm within 10 minutes walk of Marks and Spencers in the heart of Bath.

Mark Smith from Farming and Wildlife Advisory Group (FWAG) tells us why he's excited for the future of farming.

Season 1 brought a monthly flavour of the September walking festival through interviews with special guests, a recorded local walk and a 'top-tip' section with festival organiser Lucy Bartlett.

Season 2 delves deep into the rich diversity of the Bathscape, its culture, heritage, landscape and people.
