Next of Kin - The Story 

A farmers life isn't easy one, you are either born with or you are brought up in it. Next of Kin follows the story of Evie Draper, who left her family farm when she was an adolescent for the big city. However, things are about to change for this city-living-girl when Malcom, Evie's father, finds out he is diagnosed with a life changing illness. We witness Evie adapt to farm life, from long hours keeping cattle safe in the freezing cold Cornish countryside to driving her first tractor. Neither of which is a common sight back in her high-rise office in Central London. 

The farming industry as a whole hasn't seen too many high positioned female farmers in British history, however, the number is on the rise. Evie may not be a farmer by trade, but it runs in her blood and she has the will and determination to save her Dads farm. Evie will soon become a part of the 28% of all agricultural positions who are taken up by women in the United Kingdom.
