Since Poldark, the whole BBC has gone a bit scythe crazy with features and interviews on Farming Today, the Radio 4’s Today programme and countless local stations. Here in the north-west I’ll be on Radio Lancashire tomorrow morning talking to Graham Liver who is so keen that he drove up to Kendal today to meet me and get a taste of the scythe.
We struggled a bit to find some grass that needed cutting and he seemed mainly interested in posing by the river with his shirt off but I managed to get him to cut a few strokes with the scythe first and his efforts weren’t wasted.
A comprehensive and practical guide to working with an Austrian scythe. Perfect if you cannot attend a course or as a reference guide following tuition.
