While Natalie Redding's background makes her somewhat of an interesting character, most of the show's focus is on the work involved in running and sustaining a farm as a primary source of income. It also highlights how vulnerable these businesses are are when things like illness and other issues affect their livestock.

It's not the most action-packed show, but it does attempt to liven things up a bit by showing animals being sheared, castrated, or put down. Animal lovers, as well as folks who are interested in learning more about how sheep farming works, will definitely find it interesting.
