    Channel 5 Live: Harvest on the Farm recording at Barleylands

    Bishop Nick beer to be reviewed as part of new prime-time Channel 5 show celebrating the very best of the British harvest.

    Ex-Strictly Come Dancing contestant Helen Skelton and Escape to the Country’s Jules Hudson will be live from Barleylands Farm in Essex TONIGHT from 8pm.

    For four weeks, the pair will be recording the hour-long Live: Harvest on the Farm show from the site where they will be “mucking in” with Britain’s farmers as they bring in the harvest.

    In episode one, airing TONIGHT, Helen and Jules meet the wheat farmers who provide daily bread, look at the age-old craft of corn dollies, and taste the best of British brews (including our Premium Ale – DIVINE)

    On Tuesday 26th September the show will be hosting a live beer tasting with Natalya Watson: and she has chosen our "Divine" Premium Ale as one of the three beers she wants to talk about on the day.

    Also, chef Tim Bilton will be cooking up the “ultimate super sarnie”, and Yorkshire’s Cannon Hall Farm brothers Rob and Dave Nicholson go head-to-head in a wonky veg bowling challenge.

    As well as the brothers, the presenting duo will be joined by radio and TV host George Lamb, ITV’s Lorraine and Good Morning Britain resident doctor Amir Khan, JLS star JB Gill, and Reuben Owen from Channel 5 series Our Yorkshire Farm.Co-star - singer turned farmer JB Gill

    A spokesman for Channel 5 said: “Across the week, we celebrate great British food heroes – from the wheat farmers and bakers who give Britain our daily bread, to the crops that give us a kickstart in the morning.

    “We pick the fruits and vegetables that tickle our palates and make us merry – and we follow our entire food supply chain from field to fork.

    “And we encourage our audience to Eat to Save the World – launching a campaign to help people eat local, lower their food miles, reduce their food waste, and try delicious new dishes.

    “Culminating with a harvest festival at the end of the week, this is an epic celebration of great British food and farming.”

    Nelion Ridley says "We are thrilled that Natalya Watson has chosen one of our beers to discuss on this new show and we are all for ventures that promote eating locally, decreasing food miles and decreasing food waste.  We are especially chuffed that Channel 5 are showcasing Essex farming for this series."
