Description: Tractors, Tools and Traditions Part 2
Tractors, Tools and Traditions Part 1
This second DVD rounds off the year from the end of summer to the winter jobs that prepare the farm for the spring work we saw in part one. Another binder, preparing sheaves to feed into a threshing drum, and a Ransomes combine continue the grain harvest, while an old International baler takes up the straw for livestock feed and bedding. Fodder beet and potatoes are lifted, and more land is treated with muck and worked with assorted cultivation gear including a mole plough. Trevor’s pigs, cattle, sheep and poultry feature strongly, including a sequence on Christmas geese and ‘putting the pig away’ for meat for the family. Trevor’s enthusiasm for early mechanisation and his ability to keep them working on the farm makes these DVDs real gems for all machinery and agricultural fans. Truly a glimpse back at what life was like when mechanisation was taking over on the farm.
Written & narrated by Alan Stennett.
