From the creators of the award-winning international farming format, 'Feirm Factor', comes a new farming fly-on-the-wall observational documentary series entitled Contractors.
“This is not commissioned but is being developed by our team in Domhan Media for 2020.” TV director/producer, Evan Chamberlain, told That’s Farming.
“This would be a four 1-hour long series of programmes that delves into the personalities, perspectives and personal stories of five agricultural contracting families,” he added.
Filmed over the four seasons, the series offers a unique, 360° insight into modern Irish farming, its people, processes and the heartbeat of rural life.
