Matt Baker: Our Farm in the Dales will return to More4 for two new series

Channel 4 has confirmed that it will be returning to Matt Baker’s family farm.

It has announced two new series of its hit show Matt Baker: Our Farm in the Dales as well as a festive special

Airing on More4, the programme follows three generations of the Baker family – Matt and his wife Nicola, their kids Molly and Luke and Matt’s parents Mike and Janice – on the family’s organic sheep farm in the Durham hills as they continue to make the vital changes needed to secure the future of the family farm.

A teaser for the new episodes shares: “The Bakers will undoubtedly have their work cut out again as they rally to get things back on track post pandemic. We’ll also discover how the new breeds of sheep are getting on and follow the progress of Mike’s 1946 Dodge car that Matt and some local friends so lovingly brought back to life in the first series.

“With cameo appearances from the miniature donkeys, sheep, dogs, and chickens, we’ll check in with Matt for an update on his never ending to do list, meet plenty of local characters and new animal arrivals, and see how Janice has adapted to life on the farm in the wake of her accident.”

The series starts on Monday, 25 October at 9PM on More 4. You can watch episodes on via All 4.

Series star, Director and Executive Producer for Big Circus Media, Matt Baker said: “We were overwhelmed with the response to the first series and my whole family are delighted to welcome viewers back to witness the next chapter of our farm.

“I’m so grateful to Deborah Dunnett and Channel 4 for their continued support and confidence in my growing production company and team. To have a festive special too is the icing on the Christmas cake.”

Deborah Dunnett, Commissioning Editor for Features and Daytime at Channel 4 added: “I am absolutely thrilled that the Bakers will once again be sharing their rural paradise with More4 viewers. We’ve all loved spending time in the company of the family and their animals, against the glorious backdrop of the Durham Dales, so to have two new series and a Christmas special to look forward to is just an utter joy.”

Co-founder of Big Circus Media and Executive Producer Gareth Collett said: “It’s fabulous that Channel 4 have committed to this number of programmes from a small regional indie that only opened its doors last year. If anything shows how important the current Channel 4 model is to small media firms just starting out, it’s this.”
