Documentary made by John and Roy Boulting focusing on harvest time.
Early morning scenes around a farm, featuring pigs, chickens, geese and cattle. The livestock are let out into the sunshine. A tractor pulls a binder while boys and men stand in a cornfield waiting for rabbits to break cover. Two rabbits are shot. The sheaves of corn are stood up to dry in stooks, before farm workers relax and eat lunch by a hedge. The sheaves are pitched into wagons and carted to the stack. At a local windmill, the grain is ground. There are scenes of Morris Dancing and a harvest supper. In the local church the Reverend Conrad Noel leads the harvest thanksgiving service.
Documentary made by John and Roy Boulting before they became famous for their cinema feature films.
