* Please note * – this DVD was previously titled Tractor Ted Organic Farm Visit.
Preschool children are fascinated to see the real organic farm animals and machines in this 40 minute film introduced by their favourite farm character, Tractor Ted.
Made in partnership with the Soil Association. This children’s film is shot using the real life action of work on some of the country’s most prestigious organic farms. It shows which farming techniques are used by organic growers to keep the crops weed-free and thriving. Techniques such as composting and clover growing, ways that encourage insects and birds to act as natural pest controllers. Tractor Ted interacts with the children throughout the film, encouraging them to listen, count, read and sing along to the lovely songs like the ‘Clover Song’. Children love the bugs and beetles that Ted finds in the flowers. They are also fascinated by the tractors and machines that are out in the fields clover mowing, composting, thistle topping and oat harvesting. The beautiful countryside of this DVD is breathtaking and filmed on Helen Browning’s farm in Wiltshire and Patrick Holden’s community farm in Wales, both senior figures within the organic movement.
Take the catchy tunes along with you in the car on the Tractor Ted CD.
