Hoppers & Pickers
Hoppers and Pickers documents the hop and apple harvest on Bullen Farm, in the Low Weald of Kent.
As the harvest ends, the air of the Kentish Low Weald smells sweetly of apples, rotting on the ground. Mr Wheeler says the hops and apples don’t pay much any more. When the creaky old hop frames fall down he won’t replace them. But the farm seems to keep going - the old tractors and the hop picking machine have been running since the 1950s. The Czech workers joke that it is like a museum.
