Introductory Scythe Courses

July-17-team-mow.jpgThe aim of this course is to teach you what you need to know to get you mowing. It is an ideal beginning before you buy your first scythe or to improve your technique if your already have one.

The course is very hands-on and we aim to give you plenty of chance to practice. The day starts with looking at how to set up a scythe so that it will work well for you, then it is out to the field to have a go at mowing. After lunch we cover the all important job of keeping your blade sharp and cutting well, including the art of peening.

All equipment is provided. There will be an opportunity to purchase a scythe and related equipment at the end of the day, including a blade that has been peened and is ready to mow.

“I did the scything course with you last year. A really excellent day and I’ve hardly put the scythe down since.” David, N Wales, 2013 course graduate
