This Farming Life, Season 2 – Rural Scotland is a challenging but beautiful place to make a living farming, but it comes with steep rewards. Those who give up a more urban life in favor of the countryside enjoy fresh air, a simpler life, and some of the most incredible scenery the world has on offer.
