Storyline

A stubborn old farmer won't listen to any of his neighbors about how to improve the efficiency of his farm with modern methods, as he thinks "the old ways" were just fine. His three daughters live on the farm with him, and the oldest one, a teenager, has fallen in love with a local boy. However, she knows that she is expected to help her father work the farm and is torn between her love for the local boy and her father's expectations for her to continue working the farm.

A Rare Treasure
2 November 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I found this at a 4-H Agents Conference...I had never seen it before, possibly because I've always lived in urban areas. I'm such a fan of Wood and Brennan, I took a chance buying it. It shows how 4-H members were able to teach their parents better farming practices. I agree with other reviewers that it could be better... sometimes the logic fails me, but more character development would make a longer film.

The copy I have is very gritty, I'd like to see it re-mastered.
