In 2013 I teamed up with celebrity chef Nigel Slater to co-present Nigel and Adam’s Farm Kitchen, a four-part series exploring how food gets from farm to fork, and how to make the most of seasonal produce. Nigel is a great cook and lovely to work with.
I have filmed three series for BBC Lambing Live alongside Kate Humble, the third series of which aired in spring 2014. Each series featured a year in the life of a sheep farmer with half of the programme live from the lambing shed based on the farm. Live television for me was fairly terrifying but thankfully Kate is a true professional and mentored me through. The programme was very well received by both the general public and sheep farmers, giving a true reflection of the trials, tribulations and joys of running a sheep flock.
In 2015 I presented a new series of BBC1’s Secret Britain with Ellie Harrison. This 3-part series discovered the Water World of Wales, the Mysterious Moors of Yorkshire and The Hidden Highland of Scotland. Ellie was great fun to work with and some of the experiences were new to me, including hot air ballooning and gliding.
I have also been asked to present on Countryfile Summer Diaries, Big Wildlife Revival, BBC2’s Coast and Inside Out. I have a monthly column in Countryfile magazine, as their resident farmer, as well as the Cotswold Life magazine.
My English teacher would be amazed that I have written a book titled “My Life on the Land”. This has been very well received and I have plans, in the not too distant future, to further develop some book projects.
