Austrian Scything

Once again the orchard is covered with a fantastic wild flower meadow. There are all the traditional varieties like Lady's Bedstraw, Oxeye Daisy, Hoary Plantain, Yellow Rattle, Red Campion and Wild Marjoram and more.

This year, rather than strimming the meadow in a rather needs must way, we will be cutting the meadow in a more traditional way using scythes.

On Sunday 8th October Clive Leeke will be holding a master class in Austrian Scything. Spaces are limited but come along and see how it is done.  Hot chocolate and mulled cider on offer to keep you warm.
