Running approximately half a reel, this Gaumont comedy pokes fun at newfangled "scientific" farming methods. The main character, a gentleman farmer, decides to cultivate his crops within the walls of an apartment house. The farmer enlists his household servants in this venture, affording the audience the spectacled of seeing liveried valets hoeing, seeding and harvesting. Not content with this, the farmer sets up a game preserve in his parlor! As expected, the film ends with the farmer and his friends embarking upon an indoor "hunting trip."
