Ben has just finished serving a B&B guest her breakfast. He and David talk about Open Farm Sunday next weekend. Ben is surprised to hear that Bridge Farm are not doing it, although neither he nor David know the reason why. Ben is really looking forward to it and is confident Brookfield has everything under control. David’s just pleased to see Ben looking so happy. Later, Freddie drops by and shows Ben his new DJ Freddie P website. Freddie tells Ben he’s given up hope of the Lower Loxley trustees ever appreciating his hard work. DJing is all he cares about now. Later, Freddie calls Ben. His website has already succeeded in attracting a last-minute booking from a club in Birmingham. Ben should come too. Ben says he’ll think about it, but admits to David that he’s worried he won’t be able to handle it. He’d prefer not to go.
Bumping into Stella in the yard, Ruth can see she’s upset. Only now does Stella reveal that Brian’s sacked her. Ruth is the first person she’s told. Stella explains the circumstances of her dismissal. She insists that Adam knew he was authorising her to purchase the disc drill when he told her she was in charge. But he’s claiming he only meant the day-to-day running of the farm. Ruth is furious with Brian and expects him to quickly realise his mistake. Stella isn’t so hopeful. She’s considering getting legal advice. She’s put her heart into the management of Home Farm and she’s not leaving without a fight.
