It’s the group’s third week at the farm, and with the success of their Bed & Breakfast guests last week, attention turns to other projects. They decide to open a restaurant at La Banditaccia, and welcome their first paying customers.
To get some inspiration for their restaurant, some of the group head off to explore the Florence, and take in the delights of the local food markets. After experiencing the wonders of the Tuscan capital, they head back at the farm where they invite some locals to dinner and offer them a unique take on their home-cooked Italian food – with mixed results.
With the grape harvest done and dusted, attention starts to turn towards the farm’s next biggest crop, the olives. But the group discover that the farm’s olive groves are under threat when a fly-attack hits the local region.
With a less than smooth restaurant opening, and the unpredictable nature of farm life, some start to discover that the experience of rural life is tougher than expected.
