https://onescytherevolution.com/index... - I kept the mowing segments very short, since there are other videos on that. I focused more on the tedding and turning of the hay, to give a real-time sense of the amount of work involved with that aspect of haying.
The timing didn't work out, to show how to set up the pyramid haystack frame. Hopefully next summer. In the meantime for more info on haystacks see my blog at http://www.onescytherevolution.com/1/...

This is a man that clearly has it made in life. He works hard but he works for himself, and  what he has is his. It's obvious he enjoys his life. I doubt he would trade it for a "wealthy" mans life. Great video.

I love this video.  Thanks for not trying to "dress it up" with music.  The sounds of the birds and water fowl are great.  And how can one not just love the trusty dog that comes tromping through to check it out?  Ahhh... Someday.

i really have this huge urge to pet that dog
Looks peaceful out there. I'm a city boy and I wouldn't mind living like that for a change.

There is something very zen and peaceful about cutting grass or hay with a scythe.
This was fascinating to watch! You make it look so easy but I am sure it is a skill that takes a while to perfect. I would really like to have this lifestyle. You can sure see how in the old days people didn't get fat (lol)
I know it's alot of work for you, but I found this very relaxing.

+LKDisney It looks a lot like kayak paddling. Very zen-like when you get into a rhythm and just focus on that. I'd guess Botan is a little surprised when he hits the end of the row.

I felt very content myself.
It's like saying screw cellphones, I'm stick to writing letters.

I love this video. I watch it over and over. It relaxes me to watch it. And I am gearing up to buy one and work on my 1/8 acre alfalfa field. Thank you for showing how this can be done without a mower with gas! I see the comment below asking questions about calculations, but for me the physical energy put into this is priceless and too meaningful to "calculate." I can see why he would want them though since he is in school and would like to see the difference and maybe be able to put qualitative analysis with quantitative data. Anyway, love love this! I want a scythe so badly.

great vid please make more.what are you feeding with it?thanks for sharing.
Oh my, I could almost smell the sweet smell of drying hay! I guess everyone has smells that remind them of certain things. To me, summer smells like hay & diesel fuel - I spent many a summer day driving the tractor for my brothers to load on hay bales.
