Cutting grass with a scythe

Curious about how grass is cut with a scythe? On Wednesday July 8 miller Paul will demonstrate this at the Blokweer Museum Mill.

 

Nowadays almost all te grass in Kinderdijk UNESCO World Heritage is mowed by a machine. Lightning fast. But we would love to show how people used to do this in the past. Mowing with a scythe was quite a laborious job. Wednesday you can experience with your own ears the wonderful soothing cutting sound that the scythe produces!
