WATCH: Find True Maltese Gold In This Heartwarming Video Set In A Field Of Potatoes

The Maltese field is where the magic happens

Steve Zammit Lupi, the University graduate with a passion for farming, has put his videography skills to good use to create this touching look at a Maltese farming family and their daily thoughts.

Following the family of Joseph Farrugia, a well-known farmer known for his positivity as well as his online mentoring, the video shows the hard work required to take care of a field.

"Joseph loves potatoes, and he inspired everyone with his morning motivation posts in the group so I had to meet up," says Steve. "It's a real labour of love for potatoes, but his heart bounces as he sees the gold potatoes surface."

Explaining the crops that his family grows and the markets they sell them to, the video gives a real insight into the farming life, one that is rarely seen in Malta anymore.

"You know what satisfaction is?" asks the hard-working farmer, with a smile on his face. "Coming to your field after four or five months struggling, and - as long as the air is on your side - you see gold rising from the ground."
