When will Matt Baker's Our Farm in the Dales series three be out?
Channel 4 is yet to confirm when we're likely to see the third series air. However, we can look to previous seasons for hints. The first series aired in March 2021 and the second lot of episodes aired in October.
Matt and his family have been busy as per usual on their farm on Durham in recent weeks, and it's clear from the first two seasons that they can turn around the series relatively quickly, therefore, fans are hoping to see series three released in the first half of this year. Fingers crossed!

What has Matt Baker said about his TV show Our Farm in the Dales?
Matt is very close to his family, and in an exclusive interview with HELLO! last year, he spoke about how they inspire him.
"We're very close, my whole family," he explained. "That's always been my motivation, with everything that I've done in my life has always been my family and providing for my family and they've always come first."
He added: "Family have always been so important to me, when I said I was leaving the One Show to spend more time with my family, and then suddenly, everybody was. The timing of lockdown and me leaving the One Show was quite incredible. We were very fortunate to be in the middle of nowhere, all together for lockdown."
