About this event

Are you an experienced scyther or a scythe- curious newbie? Want to make hay while the sun shines? Join us, ORSN & FolkCamp, at Topsy Farms on Amherst Island in Ontario to learn about scythes, scything and hay making the old-fashioned way.

We will also be celebrating our various traditions of harvest time, including Lammas (loaf-mass -Anglo-saxon "hlaf-mass" ) or Lughnasadh (The assembly of the sun-god Lugh) in Gaelic

Tickets $100.00 per person. Limited concessions are available, please get in touch.
