Description
"The Little Farm" revolves around a farmer (Tom Richards), his companion/housekeeper (Edna) and his shifty friend and part-time employee (Jack). Tom has lived alone on the remote small-holding ever since his mother died and, finding he can no longer manage to work the farm as well as do the household chores, advertises for a housekeeper.
