"A farm worker with a horse in a country lane. Another worker drives a horse and cart. A man, possibly the foreman, stops to talk to him. In the farmyard, the Blewitt family: Guy Blewitt and his wife Audrey and Denise Blewitt, wife of the film maker. There are pets and some of the farm workers. A man drives up in a Trojan van. General scenes around the farm include a man driving a horse-drawn water cart, the feeding of pigs and piglets, workers in a field with a tractor, and a shepherd leading sheep along a country lane. In the farm yard, the farmer rides his bike towards the camera and stops to pose. The cows return along the lane for milking. Other scenes depict a horse-drawn hoe, a tractor-drawn harrow and a steam-powered threshing machine. Men are at work round the thresher, and a Scottie dog hunts for rats in the straw. Sacks of grain are lifted up onto a cart. The threshing team line up for the camera and remove their caps" (EAFA Database).
