A family from Pembrokeshire are taking on a television challenge where they swop their everyday routine for a new way of life on a Welsh hill farm.

The Morgans from Sageston are amongst just three families from across the UK appearing in The Family Farm, which has its first airing on BBC Wales on Sunday (May 13).

The family - engineer dad Simon, marketing officer mum Sam and children Rhys, aged 14, Gracie, aged 11 and eight-year-old Brody - were taken out of their comfort zones for the four-part series, set in the mountains of Snowdonia.

They spent a summer of a lifetime, living in a tented village on the family hill farm, where they were pushed to the limits with early starts, late finishes and dirty jobs in all weathers.

The Morgans applied for the faming challenge after being tagged in a post on Facebook.

Already keen on rural life - having enjoyed camping and National Trust weekends, where they tackled tasks like learning how to dig a toilet and skin a rabbit - they felt that The Family Farm challenge could give them a chance to learn new skills and spend more time together as a family.

Said Sam: "We don't spend a lot of time as a family in the week because we're both working."

Alongside their own daily farm chores, the families were also given a series of challenges, designed to show how our food gets from gate to plate, and the first week sees them rounding up sheep before they are taken to the market.

Each week, the families' efforts are judged by experts, with presenters Kate Humble and farmer Gareth Wyn Jones choosing one exceptional individual to receive a shepherd's crook for their good work.

The Morgans join the Burtons from Manchester and the McNultys from Glasgow in The Family Farm, which can be seen on BBC One Wales at 6pm on the next four Sundays.
