Mowing in the Czech Republic

I’m heading off this week on holiday – to go mowing! Christiane and I are driving to Valašské Klobouky in South Moravia, close to the Slovakian border to take part in a volunteer project run by Kosenka, mowing and making hay on 6ha of meadows.

For me it will be a really great opportunity to mow on a large scale with a group of others. I’m interested to see what snaths and blades they’re using, the forks and rakes and to learn more about haymaking.

See more photos of last year’s project here.
