Scything Today

Scything today is undergoing a rennaissance.  Local authorities, stately homes, allotmenteers and home gardeners are increasingly using the lightweight Austrian scythe as a zero-carbon alternative to managing weeds and grass.   Scythes are even being used to cut lawns!

The number of people teaching scything is growing in number.  You can find details about these on our courses page.  Some hardy souls are even involved in the cut-throat (not literally) world of competitive scything.  Watch the brilliant video below for a profile of two of the best, Phil Batten and Simon Damant.
