Grass cutting the easy way!

The hay meadows in the orchard are usually cut by hand using the traditional technique of scything. This year, one of our orchard members kindly stepped in to cut part of the grass full of nettles and thistles. Being a member of the Vintage Tractor Club, he brought along his 1956 Ferguson tractor along with a Mayfield grass cutter from the 1950s. Together, they made an easy job of cutting the nettles and thistles.
