Farming opportunity on BBC TV series

PUBLISHED: 11:32 08 March 2010 | UPDATED: 08:35 28 March 2014

MARCH 8, 2010: The BBC is looking for ten couples to take part in a new series which will really put their aptitude for farming to the test.

Over six weeks they will learn how to run and manage their own farm, from animal husbandry and harvesting to coping with the unpredictable British weather.

The series will culminate in the winning pair getting the opportunity to live and work on their own small farm.

A spokesman said: "Whatever your background or relationship; friends / married / siblings, as long as you both share that yearning for a life on the farm we want to hear from you."

To apply, email your name to farm@splashmediatv.co.uk and an application form will be emailed to you.

Successful candidates may spend up to six weeks away from home this summer.
