Following the record-breaking first series, More4 has confirmed ‘Matt Baker: Our Farm in the Dales’ will get two new series AND a Christmas special.
The series 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 vital changes needed to secure the farm.
The Bakers will have their work cut out as they rally to get things back on track post-pandemic. The show will also feature 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.
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.”
The new series and festive edition dates have yet to be confirmed but we will update as soon as we know. Channel 4 has also announced Terry Pratchett’s The Abominable Snow Baby for Christmas as well as a new ‘One Night In…’ Christmas special.
