Hay Days

Original title Hay Days


Anthony and Petra Ingram sold their house in the UK and bought a small farm in a mountain village in Harghita County, Romania. They have been living at their farm for about six years when Ralph and Orsolya Veraart visit them during the hay making season of summer 2012. They talk about why they have chosen to live on the farm, about getting children (or not), and the fact that Anthony was given away for adoption as a baby and the infertility between Anthony and Petra.
