The Austrian Scythe is a light and versatile tool.

It is quiet, requires no petrochemicals to run and is enjoyable and easy to use.  We use a scythe instead of a strimmer or mechanical mower for everything from mowing meadows to clearing brambles, with equal if not better results and no uncomfortable mechanical vibrations.

We would like to share our skills, built up from many years of using the scythe in our garden, around the smallholding, hand hay making, teaching, talking and sharing.

We run courses to get you started on your scything journey or help you as you progress. In our shop we sell the same high quality equipment that we use. Through this website we share information about many aspects of scything, hand hay making and hand farming.
