They like to increasingly feature industrialised factory farms, the machinery for which they portray as some kind of fairground ride. The last episode of Countryfile featured the harvesting of 38,000 tons of carrots. The Presenter (come model) of course had to have a go at driving, just to do the Girl Power bit. Meanwhile the sorting factory machines were staffed entirely by women, who they described as being better suited to it (desperate enough to accept dead-end minimum wage work more like).

The smaller farms they do occasionally feature tend to be the playthings of BBC staff themselves (or associated actors/celebs).
