The Fast and the Farmer-ish

The Fast and the Farmer-ish

In the Welsh heat, two teams of young farmers from south west Wales put their reputations as skilled drivers on the line. It’s the West Wales Cowboys versus the Chipmunks, and both teams are determined to fly the flag for their nation in the semi-finals. 

Hosted by full-time farmer and YouTuber Tom Pemberton, both teams go head-to-head in three spectacular, high-octane agricultural challenges. They burn rubber in the tractor tug, crack a complex hay bale puzzle, and compete in a fiercely tricky relay that tests the drivers’ memory as well as skill. This is a long way from Countryfile! 

When the wheels stop turning, one team will take to the podium to celebrate as the losers take to their tractor cabs for the homebound drive of shame.
