Yep did it a few years ago and it renewed just the other day. Quite a few different types of videos on it, some following a farm through a year and others visiting with contractors and farmers in the UK and Ireland.
Their American series is quite good too, they toured round a few years ago and visited various farmers and contractors (including my old boss) Each film is 20-50 mins long and not that expensive when you work it out over the year.
They have been affected by covid so haven't filmed as much as they would like. still put a new video out each week though.
Worth it in my opinion.

It's for teenagers, not boring old farts like me. To be fair to donkey it's very successful. They raise a tremendous amount of money for charity.

I enjoy farmflix on YouTube. Haven't subscribed.
I'd recommend subscribing if you like the Youtube stuff, their paid content is a lot better. There's a bit of everything and not just guys showing off about their machinery.

Grassmen is unbearable at times , big donkey laughing and tee heeing at his own fart and that Garry is as miserable as shite.
Can't be arsed with that Donkey clown, tho tbf he is perfect for the business he is in.
Only time I would watch is if it is something or someone I'm interested in, tho that's rare.
I like Gary. I'm perhaps a miserable shite too though.

I think if you had to spend a lot of time with Donkey you would be miserable too!

I think in context Gary is totally how 90% of people actually are, obviously he may seem a bit dull in comparison to Four XL Krusty the Clown.
Don't think two Donkey types would work.

Have been subscribed to Farmflix for a couple of years now, good content & have met the main man, he's a sound lad.
Good variation on what they put out, it's the silage & slurry that sells, odd good silage video when they go in-depth on the outfit but I mostly prefer the other stuff.
