Matt continued: "The farm's a big part of our family - it's like I'm returning to a life I had left before. It was going to take something like an accident to make my mum realise things had to change, because the farm is her passion.

"She's the shepherdess and Dad's not well enough to run the farm. As soon as we arrived, we could see Mum was very vulnerable so it was all hands on deck to help."
