The scythe so much to offer.  

Using a scythe is good for you and good the environment. We want to share this with as many people as possible.  We do this by providing information, tuition, sales, advice and community.

Look around our website to see how much the scythe can do. 

A homepage section

The scythe is not just nostalgia. It’s great exercise for body and mind. It is zero carbon. It’s the best tool to manage wildflower meadows. It’s quiet. Far superior to any machine.

On this website you will find articles detailing the services we offer, some items that we have for sale, events and courses, some technical articles and general musings about the scythe.

You’ll also find information about us, how we started scything, our approach to teaching and some information about meadow management and biodiversity.


To promote the use of the Scythe as a useful tool to manage areas of wildflower meadows and as a way of improving physical fitness as a form of exercise and relaxation.  To promote and educate about biodiversity, sustainability, and its benefits to health and wellbeing.

A Stick and a Blade will demonstrate the scythe as a practical tool for today, and preserve an ancient piece of our heritage.

Promotion of the scythe will primarily be through education and training courses off site, distribution of information, demonstrations at public events and to provide access to the tools necessary.

The Last Taboo

Everyone is stressing. The only way to avoid stress is to think of other people first. Give yourself away to serving those close to you. Give your heart away. Be with the ones love, and love the ones you are with. Only the penitent man will pass. Stay safe, stay calm, keep digging. For humour …

Bored Panda? Bored Badger

A strange take on meditation. If you are locked in with nothing to do, do nothing! The field is bigger than you think. Check out the headless way app. Douglas Harding. Use Google. I’m not doing the hard work for you. You have to find it yourself. Best of luck. This message will self destruct.
