Text from Producer:
The Lawrence family have lived at Isleport Farm for 100 years. By way of a celebration, they decided to hold a vintage hay and harvesting day down on the farm, to show how some of the work would have been carried out in times gone by. We sent Gerry Burr down to see what farming was like 100 years ago. To see how many machines developed from horse drawn days to horse power days. He came across some of the rarest machines in the world including mowers made by farmers out of old cars and bits of junk that still work today.
