Show Me A Farm Where They Harvest Wheat

Josh on straw bale
SMAF_logo_bullet_point We plan to edit our third DVD to get it ready for Christmas 2013. As well as showing children how wheat is grown and harvested it will also feature the re-building of an old threshing barn that was once used 250 years ago to separate wheat from chaff.

SMAF_logo_bullet_point Filming also took place at the Balcombe Estate, West Sussex where we filmed the felling of an oak tree which will help us tell the story of the re-building of the 250-year-old barn.

SMAF_logo_bullet_point The DVD will also feature a 400 year old threshing barn at the Weald & Downland Museum in West Sussex where we filmed women in period costume flailing wheat by hand to illustrate how wheat was harvested before the advent of mechanisation.

SMAF_logo_bullet_point This will be another DVD full of lots of big farm machinery – combine harvesters, tractors, trailers, bailers, tele-handlers – and plenty of fascinating insights into the growing and harvesting of a very important cereal crop.
