A historical observational documentary series following a team who become "Victorian Farmers" for a year.

In Victorian Farm, a specialist team - Ruth Goodman, Peter Ginn and Alex Langlands - have devoted a year of their lives to re-creating life in a 19th century rural environment. From the warmth of summer to the depths of winter, the clock has been turned back over a hundred years to rediscover this almost forgotten world.

From planting and harvesting crops to animal husbandry; from building pigsties to bee-keeping; from tree-felling to driving steam engines and operating period machinery, this hardy group - in their search for the authentic experience - undertook it all, wearing period costumes and using only tools and materials available in 1885.

In a rural world without flushing toilets, running water, street lights, gas and electricity or motor vehicles, how would the group survive? Discover, as the clock turns back and life as it was lived is revealed on a Victorian Farm.
