For Charlotte it is off to see some ducks in Bucks as she meets the famous Aylesbury duck, common to the area for 300 years and the inspiration behind Jemima Puddle-Duck. With £400 each and a lot of decisions to make along the way, will it be shepherd’s delight or blood, sweat and steers for this farming fanatical pair?
