Autumnal farming processes.
The film opens with shots of the hedgerows showing bullies and elderberries. Hoeing of root crops is shown followed by the collection of cut beans that are used for cattle feed. The film moves on to show the wheat harvest. The edge of the field is scythed by hand to make room for the reaper. This film shows a horse drawn reaper and binder. The workers are shown building shocks to allow the straw to dry. The completed hay stacks are shown, and then the poultry are turned loose to feed on the stubble and ears of wheat that have been dropped. The commentary identifies a young boy who has just left school. The film moves on to show cutting maize by hand. The sugar beet is shown being lifted and topped by hand. It is taken straight to the railway sidings by wagon. Temporary sheep pens are built in the beet field to allow the sheep to feed on the beet tops. The film ends by showing a Fordson tractor and trailer plough ploughing up the stubble.
