French farmer finds happiness in life before machines
When farm machinery revolutionized French agriculture in the years after World War Two, a young Jean-Bernard Huon turned his back on the new technology.

Half a century later Huon still uses oxen to plough his fields, determined to preserve an ancestral, peasant way of life.

Laurence, companion of French farmer Jean-Bernard Huon, unloads manure on land near their farm in Riec-sur-Belon, France. On the small farm where he grew up, the garrulous, white-bearded 70-year-old and his partner Laurence milk eight cows by hand, grind flour manually and tirelessly collect manure to fertilise the crops that feed his livestock.

French farmer Jean-Bernard Huon, 70, cuts bread during lunch at his farm in Riec-sur-Belon, France. Huon's manual approach to subsistence farming makes him a rarity in the European Union's biggest agricultural economy. He shuns France's hypermarkets, instead selling his pork, veal and butter to those who visit his ramshackle farm in Riec-sur-Belon. REUTERS/Stephane Mahe

French farmer Jean-Bernard Huon, 70, ploughs his land with oxen near his farm in Riec-sur-Belon, France. In the last decade, he's made some concessions to comfort. He switched from work horses to oxen that are more docile. More recently, as age imposes its own limits on his activities, he invested in two tractors for the heavy-lifting of hay.
