Modern farming is intensive and high-tec and the fens of Lincolnshire are the home of some of the most modern farmers in the world using some of the finest and most up-to-date machinery on their land.  This DVD narrated by Alan Stennett follows a 2,000 acre Fenland farm throughout the year to observe their Claas Challenger, Marooka, Fiat, Fendt, Agroton and John Deere tractors make use of large, fast tackle such as a 6m Preparator power harrow, a Standen Big Boy potato planter and a Vaderstad drill as well as a Claas Lexion combine to grow a range of crops from cereals and oil seed rape through potatoes and sugar beet to field vegetables.  The farm also runs its own dedicated pea vining harvesters to make sure the crop arrives at the freezing plant within a 90 minute time span from field to freezer.

The DVD follows the machinery for a full cycle of each crop from sowing or planting through to harvest as well as land preparation and cultivation on the soils.  Most of the equipment was fitted with miniature cameras to reveal close up action in operation.

A glimpse back at the 1950s using archive film taken on the farm, illustrates how farming has changed over half a century.
