Vintage farming


Every year in the Breton village of Plumaugat, there's a festival of farming. Hundreds of people take part in a parade, following which the afternoon is taken up with demonstrations of rural crafts, farming techniques, old vehicles, cider, bread and butter-making and more. Today's edition was exceptionally hot, but I escaped with only minor sunburn; those in the photos look remarkably unfazed by the weather.

What terrific photographs. Very envious of that rusty tractor!

Yes, if they'd had 'for sale' signs Dad and I might have brought one home!

Not if Mum had any say in the matter

Great pix. That cow looks rather disapproving, mind!
