Mackham Farm

A typical farmyard scene at Mackham, two farmers, Gilbert Forbear in the waistcoat and a friend watch the scene with knowing interest. All the requirements for such a farmyard are here, the henhouse and some hens, a dung heap with a winter’s accumulation of dung, three sows eating from their troughs and all of it outside the back door of the farmhouse.
