Flying in the face of modern farming methods, Stephen Hook raises his small herd, including his beloved Ida, on the Pevensey Levels of East Sussex. His labour of love keeps the farm in business but commercial considerations make his day-to-day work a struggle.
A bucolic idyll is threatened by economic reality in this discreet profile of a Sussex dairy farmer whose commitment to traditional methods is matched by his work ethic and affection for each cow in his herd. Genial, poignant and compelling.
A touching snapshot of the world in microcosm.
