We’ve watched the bromance between Matthew Evans, Ross O’Meara and Nick Haddow blossom over three seasons on Gourmet Farmer. With their gumboots stuck firmly in the fertile soils of the Apple Isle, everything so far has been smooth sailing.

But now, they’re really putting their friendship to the test.

In Gourmet Farmer Afloat, Matthew, Ross and Nick swap their wellies for deck shoes and take to the high seas to circumnavigate their island home in a wooden yacht. The boat is stocked with fishing rods, dive gear, barrels of whiskey and history books – all they need to do now is learn to sail!

The six-part series premiered on Thursday February 19th on SBS and continues each Thursday night at 7.30pm.

Encore screenings are running on SBS One on Saturdays at 5.30pm and on Mondays at 9.30pm following each initial broadcast.
