Cant wait for all of you to see the place I grew up in.

Additionally, Matt shared, “This is without a doubt the most personal TV show I’ve ever done. Filming on the farm, which I grew up on with all my family, was a wonderful and unique experience.

“It’s also my production and directing debut with our new production company, so it couldn’t be more personal. A big thank you to Sean from More4. It’s amazing what can happen to a conversation in a barn. “

In addition, Sean Doyle, Assistant Director of Formats and Features for Channel 4 said, “We’re excited to have Matt and his family open the doors to their beautiful rural farm on More4.

“The series is a warm, fun, and often emotional look at what a close-knit family needs, supported by an eclectic mix of animals, to pull themselves together in the face of adversity.”
