Ed admits to Emma he thinks his days farming for himself are over. He'll have to give Oliver his notice, and then concentrate on his contracting work. Ed breaks it to Joe and Eddie. Eddie offers to help Ed out before he gives Oliver his notice - Eddie's due a big cheque for his work in Penny Hassett. But Ed says he has no choice. Ed tells Emma he's proud of her, as she reminds him he's not the only breadwinner in the house. She persuades Ed to hold off talking to Oliver. The Bull renovation is going strong, and Eddie looks forward to the builders being finished in Keepers Cottage by the weekend. Adam asks David for his thoughts on the Fairbrothers, who are keen to go into share farming with Adam - David advises grilling them on their business plan. They discuss David's mixer wagon - Pip wants to buy a new one but it's a bit steep. As they cope in the meantime with self-feeding silage, Ruth's worried about them losing yields. Eddie has a go at Charlie, who's grateful when Adam says that he'll speak at the public meeting on Wednesday - and Brian can chair it. Charlie calls Adam one of a kind.
