Helen Skelton and Jules Hudson return for the latest series of Springtime on the Farm

A new series of Springtime on the Farm returns this week, bringing Yorkshire favourites Helen Skelton and Jules Hudson back to our screens.

The pair will once again be joined by Adam Henson and the Nicholson brothers at Cannon Hall Farm in Barnsley for a celebration of all things spring during a busy time for farmers. The two-week extravaganza features Royal visits, famous faces helping out on the farm, and an exciting new mission to help the nation give back to the farmers that kept them fed during the pandemic.

The cameras are poised to capture the drama and excitement as farms across Yorkshire and the UK cope with the millions of expected of births as they rush to bring new life into the world.
