This two DVD set has been 3 years in the making and follows the life of a ‘yesteryear farm’ that still uses vintage and early classic tractors and implements to do all of the jobs from drilling barley and oats, harvesting with binders, threshing the sheaves, and hay and straw making, to mucking out the cattle sheds and spreading it on the fields. We also see fodder beet harvested and various belt driven mills and cutters to prepare the animal feed.
Livestock husbandry includes pigs, cattle, sheep and poultry, and some of the traditions associated with them including milking and making butter by hand. The farmer’s enthusiasm for early mechanisation and his ability to keep them working on the farm makes this DVD set a real gem for all machinery and agricultural fans. A glimpse back at what life was like when mechanisation had taken over on the farm.
