This short film features Vince McIntyre, a Canadian farmer who is preserving a way of life from a bygone age. Despite the challenges, Vince is farming without machinery, inspired by techniques he observed as a boy in post-war Ireland. Vince shares his experience of working with the land and why he still believes in doing so by hand.
