“Tune for the Blood” was filmed by local director Anne Cottinger who wanted to highlight the challenges faced by young farmers.

3% of UK farmers are under the age of 35, and numbers are decreasing as many family farms struggle to survive.

The film was shown last night at the Borderlines Film Festival in Hereford.

It was produced by Herefordshire film makers Richard Branczik and Anne Cottringer who began work on the project three years ago.
