The Farming Family on 1953 Massey Ferguson Tractor, Llanafan, Ystwyth Valley, Ceredigion, West Wales
A small family owned farm in the village of Llanafan which is in the county of Ceredigion, West Wales. The village is situated on the north side of the beautiful Ystwyth Valley and the river eventually flows into the sea at the seaside town of Aberystwyth. Haymaking for this farm is an important time and is dependant on the weather. When its good enough and the grass is cut it is left to dry in what are known as windrows and then collected as in these photos. Local people come and help to ensure all the hay is collected, brought in on the tractor trailer and stored in the barn.<br />

The tractor they are using is a 1953 Massey Ferguson which is still in good working order and has a lucky horseshoe on the radiator. Stock Photo by Paddy Bergin
