Are you following the series this week? Check out tonight’s line-up here.

Guest presenter, comedian and actress Deirdre O; Kane will join hosts Ella McSweeney and Áine Lawlor live from Gillian O’Sullivan’s farm in Waterford as part of tonight’s episode of Big Week on the Farm. RTÉ will be exploring the value of manure and finding a highly productive farm which exists entirely underground.

Location presenter Darragh McCullough joins the students from Laurel Hill School in Limerick who are rearing Aberdeen Angus cows – will the live weigh-in reveal the good news of substantial weight gain? And Helen Carroll is in Kildare, where she will be part of a live world record attempt to create the largest procession of Massey Ferguson tractors ever seen. Will we see the birth of a calf, live on air?

Host Farm

Gillian and Neil and their children Fionn (6), Hannah (4) and Tim (2), are the host farmers this year. The family have been farming for generations and Gillian’s father and mother Marianne and Michael Wall are still heavily involved in the farm.

Each night, on Big Week on the Farm, Ella, Áine and celebrity guests will present live studio demos, discussions, dissections, hatchings and births. Location presenters Darragh McCullough and Helen Carroll will be broadcasting live from ten different farms across the country; two different farms a night! Join in as the drama unfolds every night, April 9th-13th, from 7 pm on RTÉ One. Episode 4, RTÉ One, April 11th at 7pm.
