Description

The first part of the film shows a series of mechanised farming scenes, with a group of workers gathering a wheat harvest using a combine harvester and grain trailer, being followed by a tractor pulling a straw bailer. A second tractor uses a fork lift attachment to lift several prepared bails of straw on to the back of a trailer.

The second part of the film shows a series of portraits of children and adult family members in the field, whilst the vehicles work behind them. The group watch the farm vehicles working the land.

The final sequence shows the family gathering for a tea party in the garden, followed by a brief shot of the family's pet Jack Russell dog and a rainbow over the house.
