Colin Capon on Farmstead
(Great Briddlesford) was a very much mixed farm. Mainly it was a dairy farm.
I mean when we say dairy farm that was probably about 30 cows, pigs, no sheep, but corn, some arable like corn as well and we used to grow nothing very serious but there was always a few … everybody seemed to grow potatoes in those days for some reason.
I think it was more for friends and relations at Briddlesford they …I don’t think they made any money out of it. There again, that would have been just over 100 acres, 110 I think Great Briddlesford was at that time, yeah, so they were all very much along those lines in those days, you know?
