Farm life: farmers Andrew and Margaret Little

'Rare Breed - A Farming Year' returns to ITV tonight as seven farming families from across Northern Ireland provide the inside track on the ups and downs of life on the land in 2020. Linda Stewart talks to three farmers.

'I swapped nursing for farming and haven't looked back since'

In the first episode we meet former nurse Margaret Little (27) who runs a progressive dairy enterprise at Drumderg Farm near Tempo with her husband Andrew (28) alongside his dad Raymond. Margaret is busy rearing calves in the farm's 'maternity' unit, driving during silage season, and vaccinating, among many other jobs. She also has several Simmental cattle and later in the series we see her and Andrew's mum, Katherine, developing the vegetable garden for the family.
