Landwirtschaft gestern: Heinzen und Pupen (1942)

Totally classic, romantic, dramatic, vintage farming film! Includes all the greatest tropes in farming: haymaking, stooking corn, building fences…
Leben und Arbeit in der Landwirtschaft ca. 1958
Interesting documentation of semi-mechanized agriculture and the coolest hay machine this side of the Industrial Revolution. Added bonus: great kitten cameo at 6:46.
“German UFA documentary film showing a year in life of an Austrian farming family in the Alps.”
This one is going to make your Winter chores look like a relaxed evening stroll through a rose garden.
