Wrap up warm and retreat to the wintry countryside with farmer and Countryfile presenter Adam Henson, as he recounts his Christmas memories tending to an assorted cast of animals, and celebrates the farmers who make our celebrations possible.

Adam Henson has spent his whole life on Bemborough farm – over 50 winters and Christmases. During that time, the troughs have frozen over, snow has fallen so thickly riding shire horses out to the fields has been the only option, puppies have been found under the Christmas tree – and crises out in the world have almost brought the farm to a close…

Christmas for a farmer takes a different shape to everyone else’s, because the animals always have to come first. So settle down – ideally by a fireside and with a cup of something hot – to hear the tales that have defined festivity for the Henson family, and the turbulent times that have ensured Christmas is now more important than ever for Adam and his loved ones.

Heart-warming and full of Christmas spirit, Christmas on the Farm will give you a new respect for the people who work on them.
