Feel free to add more in comments!
can someone help me with my homework on this i’m gonna have a mental breakdown
This is impressive.
I have watched all the Farm vids and I keep coming back to the Victorian Farm!
I haven't enjoyed something this much since I watch Cranford and Return to Cranford movies. This is fantastic!!! thanks for sharing. I just found it by accident and have told my daughter who lives in another state about it. I hope she watches it. Plan to watch other series as well. It made me cry, smile and envious of being able to experience it. I wish I were younger and healthier to do so. I would do it in a heartbeat!
I think it is cool in what they are doing plus this helps me in learning and shcool and it is not that borring it is quiet interesting
Finally! Someone talking sense about lamb and mutton. I don't know for the life of me why we now have such a fixation on eating lamb. It tastes like grass for heaven's sake. Hogget and mutton are far tastier and make far more economic and environmental sense than wasting a good animal in order to get bugger all meat. A mutton sheep will feed many more people than a scrawny lamb only a few months old. No, leave them in the paddock to grow fat and tasty.
Maybe people don't know how to cook it properly, thinking they can just throw chops in the pan and eat them 5 minutes later. Of course this leaves you with tough, nasty meat. Cook it slowly and it's a revelation, meaty, juicy, succulent. The loss of the local butcher is also responsible, s/he could tell customers how to cook the meat. However, the supermarket just has meat wrapped in plastic, no instructions, no guidance. So is it any wonder today's cooks see mutton as tough and nasty?
great seriies !
Who else gets farm equipment ads because you've been biging on these farm series?
Great show by the way!
I can't help but notice that Britons handle go back in time better then we American's do. Maybe thats how my ancestors got themselves out of servitude.
I would love to see them do a few series like this but in the South of Scotland near the border of England and perhaps one done in the Highland and maybe one even in the Outer Hebrides even.
I'd love to do something like this. It seems like a really rad experience
Watching this again I am really astonished as to why they are NOT OPENING THE WINDOWS while "cleaning" those rooms. I have done such things quite a few times and "wind blowing through the room" is an ally because wind has to leave somewhere ... and will drag the dust outside.
Vegetarians would have had a hard time of it in this period.
Do the three historians entirely live in the time period 24/7 for full year? No going home after the cameras are off?
I would've been a highway robber.
Ruth is the best. Hard-core she is. . . .
The amount of sheer labour involved in just surviving and hopefully, making a bit of profit is just unbelievable. It really makes one wonder how these people managed to survive and prosper.
