It’s more than just a heart-warming documentary, it is a deeper exploration of family bonds,parenting styles and the desire among so many of us to live closer to nature. The Owens are a true inspiration and I can’t wait to see what these next two years will bring.”

We’ve been overwhelmed by the public response to the series and look forward to watching life unfold on the farm over the coming episodes.”
