Nowt but a fleeting thing: a young farmer's fight for survival



A film about a young farmer’s connection to the land, his animals and a changing world in the north of England. Battling against unsustainable farming methods and an unenthusiastic market, Adam Crowe continues to work on two neighbouring farms while fighting to launch his own business and breed a flock of sheep. In rural Britain, the threat of poverty is often frighteningly close

  1. I love how people worry about the rising pension age and can't wait to retire…..i just worry about how long i can keep working for. The downside of working for yourself is having enough to actually put anything away for a retirement. Basically its impossible nowadays for most people, all our income goes on bills and daily living expenses, there is nothing left…..so when he says that he will probably drop down dead in the yard, I can quite understand how that will probably happen….there is nothing to look forward to in the future but just a continuation of 16 hour days 7 days a week till i drop dead……

  2. Thank you for funding documentaries like this Guardian. This was so beautiful. I'd say my generation and Gen Z'ers are very interested in sustainable, organic food. Unfortunately most of us barely have the money to feed ourselves. I hope this will change somehow in the future. Thank you for what you're doing Adam!

  3. All life is hard, there are very much harder jobs and they probably couldn't work at any other job, farmers work at there own pace
    After Brexit things will be better supported.
    BTW, I live in a farming community, I know farming, farmers and that this video is the product of a political rag.
