Joe Briggs, widowed five years previously, breeds pigs on a hill farm. He lives with his only daughter Kate, a single schoolteacher. His farm-worker is Vincent who is also unmarried and who has lived in a tied cottage since he was a boy. Joe's elder sister, the many times wed Gertrude, keeps the financial records. The pig industry is in a downturn and against Joe's wishes Gertrude employs Lesley Jardine, a business consultant for advice. This results in Liz Ryan co-owner of Ryan's Country Foods Ltd, coming to the farm. Having planned on living a quiet life, Joe is thrust into a world he doesn't understand. His business is unprofitable, he has a failed relationship and there are plans to construct a wind farm on his land.
