Local finalists were thin on the ground at a farming talent contest filmed in East Anglia.
The last episode of Farmer’s Apprentice, filmed at Easton and Otley College in August, has just been aired online. The 48 UK contestants were whittled down to 10 finalists. These took part in a boot camp where they were set a series of challenges to win the £10,000 prize.
The college’s head of land-based studies Martyn Davey said it was “great” to be part of the competition, but expressed disappointment at the local participation. “A lad from Wisbech made the final 10. However, he was the only contestant from East Anglia, which was a shame as it would have been great if this region had been more involved. Hopefully it will be next year.”
