Adam runs Cotswold Farm Park, near Cheltenham 

Adam runs the Cotswold Farm Park, near Cheltenham, which was originally set up by his father, Joe, in 1971. The TV star has been responsible for the farm alongside Duncan Andrews, his business partner, since 1999.

After his father sadly died in 2015, Adam made a vow to keep the farm in tip-top condition. He said on YouTube: "I don't want this to sound corny or crass, but my father died in 2015, and I was by his bedside, and I promised I would look after his legacy."

The TV presenter took over running the farm from his father

Adam lives with his partner Charlotte and their two children, Alfie and Ella, at Bemborough Farm, which is on the same holding as the Cotswold Farm Park.

When the coronavirus pandemic hit in early 2020, Adam opened up about his concerns for his farm and other businesses who were losing out on crucial customer visits and sales to keep afloat.

Adam candidly admitted he worried about the farm during the height of the coronavirus pandemic 

His farm closed on March 2020 and Adam candidly admitted he was "devastated" at the thought of losing his dad's farm. He said on YouTube: "I posted a video online to our customers about our closing. I found it really hard. I broke down. My business partner and I were in tears over the whole event and felt hugely responsible for all the staff that I employ.

"Then also promising my dad on his deathbed that I would carry on his legacy with looking after all his rare breeds. I thought to myself, 'Crikey, we are going to lose the lot here', which was hugely emotional." Fortunately, the farm pulled through and continues to be a success to this day!
