We have a selection of scythes and related equipment for sale. This is the same as the equipment that we use and we are happy to offer advice on what would be best for your circumstances.
Purchasing a Scythe in Person
If you are interested in buying a scythe, please browse the pages here, then contact us and arrange to come to the Dyfed Permaculture Farm Trust for a discussion and to purchase.
When you purchase a scythe at the Trust, we will set the scythe up with you and give you basic tuition.
Equipment is also available for sale at the end of each scythe course. Course participants have the chance to buy a “Ready to Mow” blade at no extra charge, that has been prepared and edge peened by Philip. This service is available outside courses either as part of a complete scythe kit link or just the blade.
Mail Order and other Delivery / Collection Options
It is now possible to purchase a scythe kit through The Eco Shop in Cardigan.
Items can also be ordered via email / phone and then collected from the Country Market in Newcastle Emlyn (every Friday, 9.30am-12.30pm). I occasionally travel to Cardigan and Carmarthen and can arrange to meet and deliver items.
- One Blade Scythe Kit / Trimming Scythe – £20
