This programme follows a year on a Lincolnshire smallholding. Father and son, Mick and Jonathan Putterill are avid fans of blue Ford and Fordson tractors and have amassed a large collection over the years. These machines are not idle show pieces however, but have to earn their keep on the farm, alongside a fascinating array of period implements.
Following the seasons, we see the various Fordson tractors at work including Dexta, Super Dexta and Diesel Major as well as New Performance Super Dexta and Super Major, while the Ford 6X range is represented by a 3000 and 4000. New machines include a 5600, 4600 and a 6600.
We also see how some jobs are done on the farm by contractors such as spraying and harvesting, the new machinery contrasting nicely with the Putterill's own collection.
