Countryfile’s Matt Baker left facing ‘complications’ on Durham farm as fans make TV plea

Matt Baker has admitted he’s been facing ‘complications’ on his Durham fan, as he and his family tackle lambing season and fans pleased with him to make another series of Our Farm in the Dales.

It was back in 2021 that Countryfile star Matt and his family first let TV cameras in on their life on the farm, with Our Farm in the Dales following the trials and tribulations of trying to keep the business afloat, after Matt’s mum Janice was forced out of action, having broken her leg in an accident at work. The first series saw Matt, wife Nicola and the couple’s children move back to their native County Durham to help Janice and husband Mick.

The show became so popular after its launch on More4 that it ended up being switched to a primetime spot on Channel 4 on a Saturday night, which is exactly where Matt’s latest show Our Dream Farm finds itself. The new series sees him lead the search for for the new tenants of The National Trust’s vacant Wallington Estate farm, with many viewers totally hooked and the programme performing well in the ratings in a competitive time slot.

Sharing a video of one of his family’s lambs, the former Blue Peter and One Show presenter wrote: “Lambing always comes with its complications – this little one needed a bit of support to get back on its feet and rejoin the flock.”

He added: “Growing up lambing on our farm has always taught me a lot about life in general, Be practical be helpful and mums will always come to the rescue!”

The video featured Janice coming to Matt’s assistance, fuelling pleas from his followers for another series of Our Farm in the Dales featuring all the family. Replying to his post, one fan wrote: “Wish we could have another series on the farm with your mum and dad. It was a lovely programme” as another responded: “Any more programmes planned from the farm? Always a good watch like all your programmes.”
