Back on the farm, the applicants collaborate with the National Trust ranger team on a special project: extending an old footpath to improve public access. They face challenges along the way, but the project offers a valuable opportunity to contribute to the estate’s accessibility and connection to the surrounding area. Additionally, the applicants receive guidance from a top mentor in tenant farming, who offers no-nonsense advice on balancing emotions and business acumen in their plans.
