Rex and Toby help with the village hall refurbishment by delivering Jennifer's old kitchen units. Adam spots them loading it up and for a moment thinks they're thieves. The boys are clearly doing their best to make themselves more popular with the local community - which will of course also be good business PR for them. Toby even tries to schmooze Adam about his interest in soil fertility, as Adam and Brian head off to see a farm for a soil fertility day. Meanwhile, Kate has got planning permission for her, as Brian calls it, "mad scheme". Adam says she might surprise them, but Brian points out Kate's track record. On their journey they spot that Keepers Cottage has been let. Adam worries about the Grundys, who have to leave Grey Gables any day now. At the Witney farm, Brian's impressed by a chap who's not as radical as Adam, but Adam says that in five years' time these farmers will be modelling themselves on Home Farm. Toby teases Rex about his feelings for Pip. Rob seems rather uninterested in the upcoming touch-rugby event (not physical enough). He also declines the offer of Fairbrother geese for the Bridge Farm shop, mentioning that they're not organic. Rob has organised a private scan for Helen and is delighted to discover they're having a boy.
