For the best part of a lifetime Ted Fenner has farmed his small corner of East Sussex. The film begins as Ted takes care of his winter sown crops, fertilising and spraying the wheat, barley and oats. Ted is a great fan of Massey Ferguson and the machinery on the farm consists of MF35, 135, 590 and 390.
Haymaking is featured with a New Holland conventional baler before moving on to the big task of the year - the cereal harvest. For this the MF525 harvester is used and the corn is carted away by the 390 and 590 with small trailers. A neighbour helps with the task by using his Ford TW15 and Claas Quadrant 1200 baler.
Ted also tells us about his farm and the farming year as well as crops of the past such as the hop harvest. The film finishes as the grain is sold off the farm the following year, by which time Ted has retired.
