We will have our stall set out at the Scythe fair again this year. Come and see us, its a fun day out! Near Langport, Somerset.
Best fair in the south West, as far as we know…
This is a magical one day environmental fair in a beautiful setting on the Somerset Levels run entirely by volunteers on wind, sun and muscle power. Excellent live music, over 70 stalls displaying traditional skills, crafts and produce, lively environmental debates, delicious organic local food, a variety of the best ales and ciders and a large kids area with activities throughout the day
The Green Scythe Fair is the home of the West Country Scythe Championship. This was the first and remains the biggest scythe competition in the country.
In the individual competition, mowers have to mow a square of grass five metres by five metres. It is mainly about speed, but there is also a quality score. A close even cut is preferred. There are heats from 11am till 2.30pm, as there is a limit on the number of squares available. And it is not unknown for newcomers to do very well in the event.
