Presentation cutting grass with- and the maintaining of a scythe

Curious about how grass is cut with a scythe? Our miller Paul will show you this on Sunday at the Blokweer Museum Mill.

Nowadays almost all te grass in Kinderdijk UNESCO World Heritage is mowed by a machine. Super fast. But we would love to show how people used to do this in the past. This was done with a scythe. What kind of tool is this? How do you maintain it? This and more you will learn Sunday during the presentation by miller Paul at Blokweer Museum Mill. Mowing with a scythe was quite a laborious job. Experience with your own ears the wonderful soothing cutting sound that the scythe produces! Book your online tickets!
