Stori Gilfachwyth

Take a tour of Mr Evans' farm in Cardiganshire, Wales, in this detailed yet romantic information film

Documentary 1958 29 mins Silent


Mr Evans' Gilfachwyth Farm near Llandysul in Cardiganshire, west Wales, is a model of organised and efficient modern farming methods - it's even been chosen to be part of the Royal Welsh Show. This information film offers a plethora of detail about farming methods, from fertilisers, ploughing and grazing to reaping, hay making and sheep shearing - but it's far from a dry instructional. Wonderful colour views over the farmland blend with the choral soundtrack to offer a romantic look at postwar Welsh rural life.
