Farm and windmill to feature on popular BBC One show Countryfile
Crossroads Farm in Eastwell and Whissendine Windmill are set to feature on popular BBC One show Countryfile on Sunday (June 19).
Presenter Helen Skelton is in Rutland to meet master miller Nigel Moon at Whissendine Windmill who takes her on as apprentice for the day.
Helen then heads over the border to Melton where farmer Alan Hewson, of Crossroads Farm, Eastwell, is reviving a much loved, but long gone, local cheese, Colwick - a favourite of agricultural workers in the past. Alan puts its prize-winning taste down to the rare breed red poll cattle, a once common breed in the region.
The episode airs on BBC One on Sunday at 5.45pm.
