traditional agriculture

Sadly not in Springhill, but it was interesting to see a bit of traditional agriculture today in a field in Grane about three miles away.

Despite its reputation for being old fashioned, Springhill Farm did have tractors when I remember it in the late 1960s. Of course this is how the fields would have been mown in Patrick’s day (1855-1896) though I suspect not by Patrick himself.
