The Pea Files (DVD) £16.95 £15.47

RRP: £16.95

First Pasture Price:  £15.47           

Status: In Stock

Peas have been grown around the Suffolk town of Lowestoft since at least the 1940s when much of the job was done by hand before the advent of machines such as the mobile pea viner.  Through the use of archive footage from Anglia TV's Farming Diary in the 1960s and 70s we get a glimpse of such machinery in action.

Soon such machinery was replaced by much larger self-propelled pea harvesters and these machines once again changed the process of pea farming.  In 2011 the story is brought right up to date with the arrival of three new PMC 989 harvesters in the fields of Lowestoft which represent the very latest technology.

This dvd shows the ups and downs of the pea growers over the decades, the advance in machinery used to harvest the crop and above all pay respect to the men and women who have harvested the most easterly peas in Britain.
