Matt Baker’s Farm of a Lifetime (working title) is an eight-part television series, filmed for three weeks in Northumberland by Big Circus Media. Seven applicants (individuals or couples / partnerships) are brought together for the final stage of selecting a new tenant for the vacant Gallows Hill Farm, on the National Trust’s Wallington Estate. The show is intended to air on More4 in 2023.

The applicants will be assessed on their business plans and their abilities and approaches to agricultural, environmental ‘regenerative’ farming and renovation, by completing a series of real-world tasks/experiences, with the successful applicant invited to take on a 10-year tenancy of the farm.

In each episode, the potential tenants will take on one or more tasks/experiences before the assessors decide who will progress to the next stage.

The television series will be presented by Matt Baker and the assessors will be representatives of the National Trust.
