Perthshire’s Jim Smith is well-known to comedy audiences as ‘Farmer Jim’ the stand-up farmer. His Back to the Teuchter tour sold out across Scotland. His Farm Diaries have earned him worldwide social media fame (and no shortage of female admirers!).
He’s also a regular on BBC Scotland’s Breaking The News. But, in this episode of OnFARM, he says farming will always be his number one passion.
Jim also talks about how his comedy roots, in both trying to relieve the boredom of roguing tatties, and writing and performing panto with his beloved Bankfoot YFC (“small but perfectly formed“, he says).
Anna only meant to record one episode with Jim, but he was such good craic, we split their chat over two editions. This is part 1 of 2. Enjoy!
