Good morning the Time Crashers are transported to the Georgian Period and to a farm. How will the Time Crashers handle what the farm must throw at them? The run time for this episode is 49:37.
The year is 1796. King George is on the throne and he loves farming. Wealthy landowners are building their farms to follow the king. The Time Crashers are transported to one of these farms. Kristie is immediately displeased at being in the kitchen once again. The Time Crashers immediately dive into their guides. The first pair that discover their Georgian roles is Charlie and Greg. They are farm hands and they fill take orders from the Bailiff. Louise and Kristie are kitchen maids. Meg and Fern are dairymaids. Keith, Chris, and Germaine are shepherds. Zoe will be working in the kitchen.
The Time Crashers have eight hours to make the farmhouse immaculate. The farm owner the Viscount and Viscountess are making their way to the farm for their inspection. The dairymaids will have to show off the produce of the farm while the kitchen maids will have to make food for the visit. The farm inspection was important because it showed off their wealth to their friends. They were showing off the ideal farm.
Fern and Meg are going to milk the goats and make cutters. Kristie and Louise are going to make bread as well as biscuits and cake. Fern, Meg, Kristie, and Louise will be answering the bailiff’s wife. The first step is milking. However, milking the goat is proving to be a challenge. If the girls do not get enough milk, they will not have enough to make cheese to impress the viscount. Louise struggles to get the oven started with the tinderbox. Kristie has no problems getting the oven lit. They work to get the bread made.
Greg and Charlie are working in the mill and making flour. The model farm would have a mill on sight. Making flour was one way to show off the progress of the new model farm. While Greg and Charlie are enjoying life in the mill, Keith, Chris, and Germaine are finding shepherding difficult. Chris is butting heads with the bailiff. The boys fail at their task and the bailiff must step in.
Fern and Louise work on making the goat’s cheese. The Bailiff’s wife is glad to see that the cheese is being made. Kristie oversees the meal for the farm hands. Louise is struggling to get the bread made. Louise jokes that she and Kristie are the only two of the Time Crashers that have never made bread. The oven is very hot. The Georgian ovens were so hot that they burned the dresses of the kitchen maids. It was reported that a woman had burned to death.
The shepherds work on getting the sheep clean. Chris wants to redeem himself with the bailiff. However, he is a man that takes his cleanliness very seriously. Chris has a go with clipping the dirt off a sheep. Greg and Charlie work to coax the pig out of the pen to wash the pig up to a comedic effect.
Zoe returns to the Time Crashers. Everyone is thrilled that Zoe is back. She had been sacked from the previous episode. She returns to work in the kitchens once again. She sets to work grating sugar. Zoe is having a hard time. Fern and Meg are not having any luck with the butter. The bailiff’s wife inspects their progress and tells the ladies that they had filled the butter church too much. Louise is having a challenge making bread. Kristie inspects the bread and discovers that the oven was not hot enough to make the bread.
Will the Time Crashers clean up the farm in time to pass inspection? Will Louise be able to make the perfect loaf of bread? Will Fern and Meg manage to make butter in time? Will the farm hands pass the inspection? Tune into the rest of the episode to find out more about the Georgian Farm and the Time Crashers.
This episode was particularly good because of the idea of the rich gentleman farmer. This would be one episode to show for a fun history day.
