Sowing

When in March the farmer harnesses the horses

April/May 2019

Like in grandfather’s time, oats, wheat, rye, barley... are sown in Terento’s church field, and peas, cabbages, onions, beetroot and potatoes are planted.


Adventure tips for the whole family:

  • At the “Eare fiehrn”, or “soil drive”, the soil is taken in special carts called “Earegrottn” from the lower edge of the field to the top edge
  • At the subsequent “Baudn” the field is ploughed with a horse-drawn plough
  • Just like in the olden days, the clods are then loosened and broken apart with a harrow, a process the locals call “Egn
  • The final step is “San”, sowing, where the farmers sow barely, wheat, oat, flax and more
  • The school children plant cabbages, carrots, onions, potatoes and other arable crops
  • Demonstrations of traditional farm equipment such as the “Earegrottn” carts, Radlstock, plough, harrow and others
  • Farmers and farm hands tell anecdotes and stories of “the life of farmers in days gone by”
