Situated within the walls of a twelfth century castle is a farmstead called Castle Farm. In the 1940s the desperate need for food meant Castle Farm was mobilised to help feed the nation. With many of the farm workers away at war, production was maintained with the help of Italian and German POWs.
This dvd features archive film of POWs at work in Castle Farm, as well as showing the changes that took place in the 1950s and 60s on the land as the farm became a modern dairy unit.
A dairy herd of Ayrshire cattle and vintage farm machinery including Fordson and Ferguson tractors are featured. The dvd also includes interviews with the farm owners and the people who worked there.
