From harrowing to haying, and from plowing in the fields to twitching out logs in the snowy woods, the Greggs rely on a team of six workhorses to complete their tasks. This film shows heritage farming, done by the Greggs, but it also provides a glimpse into the Gregg family life. After workhorse Pat twitches out the logs, Terry Gregg and his son, Matt spend time sawing the logs back at the wood pile, while Miriam Gregg, and her daughter-in-law, Andrea, make zucchini bread in the farmhouse kitchen. Young Clay and his two little sisters pick eggs and tend their thirteen hens. On the last weekend in June, the Greggs invite the whole community to Maple Meadow Farm Festival, held in the grounds and fields of their farm. Folks come from miles around to experience the traditional farming demonstrated at Maple Meadow Farm. Join them for a nostalgic trip into the past.
Maple Meadow Farm was produced by Brenda Nasberg Jepson of Crown of Maine Productions.
