After a difficult start to the scythe season, it was great to be back with a group learning to scythe at Bell Sykes farm in Lancashire. Bell Sykes is the Coronation Meadow for the county and the meadows are a beautiful mass of flowers. We spent the morning setting up the Austrian scythes and practising honing them before heading out for a couple of hours mowing a wildflower meadow with a great mix of species.
If you’d like to learn my next Learn to Scythe course is on 4th Sept at Chapel-le-Dale in Yorkshire. To book a space, please email me steve[at]stevetomlincrafts.co.uk
