Meet Stephen and Niall aka The Hokeaholics from The Fast and the Farmer-ish


BBC Three

Stephen ‘Red’ Martin (27) and Niall Mavitty (27) from Northern Ireland

There is a saying that young farmers from Enniskillen are, quite literally, a rare breed, and best friends Stephen and Niall are no exception. They love the craic, cows and most certainly - tractors!

Stephen originally from Enniskillen now lives in Armagh and has been farming his whole life, working as a full time contractor. Niall, an Agri Mechanic, is cool and calm under pressure, while Stephen admits to being as ‘thick and short tempered as they come’.


The Fast and the Farmer-ish is an Alleycats production for BBC Northern Ireland and BBC Three made with funding from Northern Ireland Screen. It will air on BBC Three at 9pm on Sunday 1 October and BBC One Northern Ireland at 7.30pm on Friday 6 October. The full series will be available on BBC iPlayer from Sunday 1 October.

The Fast And The Farmer-ish is part of the BBC’s Across the UK plan, moving content away from London to allow the BBC to better reflect, represent and serve all audiences.
