Despite living on an island with over 30 dairy farms, we know absolutely nothing about cows or farming.

To rectify this, late last year, we sent Sam to Ballavell Farm to meet Will Duggan, his family and his herd of cows.

For Sam this is was full on out of his comfort zone. Not only did he have to get up when it was still dark, he also had to stay off Twitter for a whole morning.

But while on the farm, Sam not only got to drive a tractor and had a go at milking, he also learnt about the challenges facing Manx farmers and gained a better perspective of sustainable farming on the island.

We’d also love your ideas for where we should send Sam for Gef’s next Big Day Out.
