The Farming Year Europe series shows farm machinery at work through the four seasons across Europe, with action from Germany, Belgium, France and Holland. Part four of this series shows the final season and was filmed during the winter of 2015/16. With lots of classic and modern tractors at work, the emphasis turns to planting next years crops as well as harvesting the vegetable crops including cabbages and brussel sprouts. The winter season starts mild but as the weather turns very cold, many farmers spread manure on the fields and undertake ploughing ready for spring sown crops.
We also witness green manure chopping, work on a fruit farm and visit a couple of dairy holdings. The programme includes a varied selection of tractors and farm machinery in action, some familiar to British viewers and others which will be quite new.
