One Farm, One Year two-part series

This two part DVD series constitutes the most detailed programmes ever released about the farming year on a large arable enterprise. We say ‘enterprise’ because Loose Hall Farm Ltd runs to 3,600 acres on eight farms stretching over eight miles.

 The manager is Kevin Easey who for 48 years has worked the heavy clay soils in the heart of Suffolk. In 2012 – the year of filming – his main crops were winter wheat, winter and spring barley, oilseed rape and sugar beet. A few beef cattle were also kept.

Chris Lockwood’s clear script describes over 160 sequences during the course of the programmes. There are interviews with Kevin Easey and many ancillary activities are on view from demonstrations of new machinery to crop-drying, hedgecutting and ditching. Machinery enthusiasts will appreciate the wide variety of different tractors and equipment seen at work.

Suffolk-based Chris Lockwood is a freelance agricultural journalist, author of three books and creator of a growing list of programmes on farming and farm machinery.

  One Farm, One Year Part Two (DVD)
Chris Lockwood

 

The second programme starts in mid August with the wheat harvest, close on the heels of which are cultivations for next year’s crops. The new rape crop is already coming through – and so are the slugs. After a very variable summer the wheat harvest finally ends in early September and a week later Kevin starts drilling next year’s cereals. Drilling, fertilising and spraying are the order of the day until beet lifting from the end of October, during what turned out to be one of the wettest autumns for 100 years.

Running Time: 125 minutes approx.
