Just spent 4 days at my mates Farm – Hazelcombe Farm near Mudgee – where they hold a bi-annual Scythe Plus workshop.
There was so much to learn my head was spinning. From Axe maintenance and wood working, Scythe Peening, Black Smithing, Wool Spinning, Bio Fertilizer production, Cheese Making, Milking Cows and Goats, Cut Throat Razor shaving and blade sharpening, making fire starters to name a few things. Then there was the great conversations and learning exchanged between the attendees. Such a great bunch of very capable and ‘aware’ folk.
The food provided was amazing and the hospitality completely genuine. Workshops and demos were presented by special guests, some of whom traveled over 9 hours to be there. People came from all over the nation and some from out of Australia.
I was too busy to take many photos, so here is a brief insight.
I will post another longer video later of the guys Scything together, this short clip will have to suffice for now.
