The story of a man who has stuck to his old farming ways.

Clontibret, Co. Monaghan is a rural parish where farming is the main occupation. Benny Moen farms 40 acres there and uses traditional farming methods. Benny has real contact with the earth as he goes about his daily tasks. Benny describes his work as very satisfying despite the manual nature of his work. He claims that as a small farmer, to buy machinery, would just burden himself with overheads. Benny prefers to work with horses over machinery as he says they each have a personality.

Back at home Benny's wife, Teresa, understands Benny's obsession with the land as it is what he has done from an early age.
