The film opens with exterior shots of the Buxted home farm and its surroundings. Visitors Day follows with a ceremony in the garden. Young men are seen at work on the farm including feeding animals, harvesting, preparing the land, processing different crops and handling farm machinery.
An open-air Visitor’s dinner follows. A young man’s outfit is laid out on a sheet on the grass along with a bible. A young man leaves the house with suitcase in hand, the matron and boys waving him off. Many different activities follow including building a wall, feeding chicks, herding cattle, carving up tree trunks, spraying a field and ploughing with horse. Much of this work is supervised by men. Some close-ups of the young men follow.
The boys play on the beach and go boating on a lake.
Back at the farm work continues with the boys caring for the chickens, feeding straw into the baler, driving tractors and making silage.
