Grace’s job

Love in the Countryside is centred around seven country-dwelling singletons. And while their livestock keeps them company, they’re all looking for more meaningful relationships.

First and foremost, Grace cares about her job. It’s clear from the off that it’s farming first and everything else, second.

Grace is under pressure as her dad is set to retire from the farm in two years time. This means that she’s going to have to run the whole farm herself and whoever she ends up with is about to be roped in to help.

One Twitter user made a joke that rather than a husband, Grace needs a farmhand!
