FACE has been involved in a fascinating oral history project in North Warwickshire. A series of interviews about 20th century farming life has been collected, reflecting the many technological and social changes that affected farming.
New FACE member Warwickshire Rural Community Council recorded the interviews for the project My Farming Life, funded by Heritage Lottery Fund. As well as the change from working farm horses to tractors and machinery, the interviews record days on mixed farms with an extensive workforce; seasonal jobs for neighbours, family and children; and how local markets and sales-at-the-door were the regular source of income.
