DIANNE BUTLER OUT OF THE BOX
GOURMET FARMER, SBS One, 8pm
NEXT in the series featuring former Fairfax journalists struggling to live off the land on minimal income: Matthew Evans. He’s had an epiphany about his four hectares at Cygnet in Tasmania — it’s sending him broke. So he’s bought 28 hectares, 10 minutes away. He is sad (the pigs have moved there), yet happy (it has some great apples, a fishing hole he could fill with trout if only it didn’t have an outlet, along with trees ‘‘ we might be able to mill up into usable planks and build stuff’’). Evans and his cheese mate, Nick, have also opened a shop, at some cost, in Hobart’s Salamanca Market.
