This Special Offer Collection contains all three volumes of Ferguson on the Farm, a superb series filmed in Devon.  With a saving of £7 this three dvd set will appeal to all Ferguson and farm machinery enthusiasts.

Ferguson on the Farm Part One: Harry Ferguson's system of farm mechanisation is brought to life here by some 25 implements filmed at work.  Beginning with early summer cultivations and potato planting, the programme covers weed control in potatoes and kale, hay and silage making, hedge trimming and general farm tasks such as post-hole boring and milk churn transport.  It concludes with potato lifting, disc ploughing, earth moving and work with the Ferguson reversible plough.

The majority of the implements are from Harold Beer's working collection in North Devon and many were bought new.  A range of Fergies provide the power, one of them still at work on the family farm where it was first used in 1949.  The programme has a full commentary scripted by Stuart Gibbard, author of The Ferguson Tractor Story.  The narrator is BBC broadcaster and tractor enthusiast David Holt.

Ferguson on the Farm Part Two: This dvd shows a wide range of Ferguson equipment, ploughs, cultivators and disc harrows at work.  Ferguson provided a complete system of mechanisation and we see many of the rarer implements in action, including the sub-soiler, rowcrop thinner, crane, dump skip, winch, cordwood saw and hammer mill.  Muck-spreading and bale-loading sequences show all the different Ferguson trailers and loaders, illustrating just how extensive the range had become by the 1950s.  Nearly all the implements come from Harold Beer's collection in North Devon.

Ferguson on the Farm Part Three: Our third visit to Great Shortridge Farm near Umberleigh, sees Harold Beer demonstrate implements from the later Ferguson era as well as machines from the early Massey Ferguson range.  We join him in the spring as he uses a Rotavator attachment to prepare a seedbed for potatoes that he then plants with an MF 718 Automatic Potato Planter.  Going on through the year, we see Harold at work with an MF 770 Heavy Duty Spike Tooth harrow, a 32-7 unit seeder, an MF 37-7 hay conditioner and a 732 mower.  Some eighteen different sequences show a variety of machines in action from an MF 203 digger loader to unusual ploughs.  Highlights include an MF 711 potato harvester lifting the crop we saw planted earlier.
