Pip and Tom prepare for Open Farm Sunday at Brookfield and Tom explains his family don't have the energy to recruit and train someone to staff the Bridge Farm shop now it's re-opened. They're manning it themselves along and Kirsty is doing some shifts too. In front of visitors at Brookfield, Adam explains high-tech fertilising while Pip and David talk about their suckler beef. They are all interrupted by the noise of Toby's drone flying overhead which David said he could demonstrate. Josh promotes Upper Class Eggs, though the sample half dozen boxes he's offering don't sell well. At the end of the day in The Bull Adam and David discuss the EU Referendum and their different points of view. Pip says she's heard a lot from David but maybe she also needs to hear Adam's angle. Tom enjoys the company and is pleased to be part of something positive. Lilian and Justin get back from a weekend away in the Peak District. Before Justin leaves to collect Miranda from the airport, he asks Lilian what she will say to Jennifer about their arrangement. Lilian says she won't be announcing what's happening between them but if her sister asks her directly she will be honest with her. Justin gets a text from his contact at the county council; there's going to be an announcement about the relief road plans.
