Lambing Life
Series 5

Young sheep farmer Chloe Hallam faces the most dramatic weeks of the farming calendar. Working day and night, she juggles delivering over 1,000 new lambs with running her beauty therapy business, in the hope of preserving the future of the family farm for the next generation.

Twenty-four-year-old Chloe has grown up on the family farm in Chunal, a small hamlet on the edge of Derbyshire’s Peak District National Park. Working alongside her dad David, she is the fourth generation of the family to work the land in this beautiful corner of the county. Farming is in Chloe’s blood, and she’s determined to take over the family business when David decides to hang up his crook.

Lambing is naturally their busiest time at Hillside farm, but this spring Chloe faces her hardest lambing season yet. David added another 150 sheep to the Hallam’s 600 strong flock this year, which means when it comes to lambing they can expect more than 1,000 new arrivals, the most Chloe’s ever had to handle.

On top of the flock, she also has another job that demands her attention. With the margins in sheep farming so tight, to ensure she can afford to keep her ambitions alive and her finances afloat, Chloe has had to diversify, juggling her duties with the flock alongside running an alternative therapy business from a treatment room at the farm. But thanks to the pandemic, like many similar businesses she has been shut for most of the year. Normally at lambing Chloe scales back her beauty clients, but as restrictions lift, they are clamouring for appointments, right in the middle of her most hectic time on the farm, and she can’t afford to turn away trade.

Working night and day and dealing with births, deaths and massages on a daily basis, we discover how a passionate young woman is determined to fulfil her dreams and keep Hillside farm in the family for years to come.
