The last farmer by carlzon The last farmer by carlzon
This is the last farmer in my little summer village (pop.350) Ljungdalen (Härjedalen, Sweden) harvesting with his scythe. Today most of the inhabitants in the village lives on tourism.
I catch him when I'm waiting for the morning bus ( 6 o'clock).

This picture reminds me so of watching my grandfather over 40 years ago. I can still smell the hay!

I could watch this picture for hours and days, and still don't get satisfaction. Wonderful.

Loveley picture!
It has something nostalgic over itself.

I think maybe I "helped" in harvesting in this old fasioned way once I was about 3-4 years old.

It's pretty rare to see people harvest in this way today, which is very sad. I feel that we are loosing a bit of history/culture :(

Underbart att se att det fortfarande finns bönder som håller på att jobba på det där sättet. annars så hålls allt bara på med maskiner nu för tiden. Men det där är verkligen som det ska vara :D

Det förhöjer själva bilden också att han har jeans på sig som är rätt modert , medans han använder ett sånt gammalt sätt att skörda på.

Hej där Emma! :rose:

Som sagt Ljungdalen är en ganska liten, men mycket trevlig by i Norra Härjedalen.
Jag misstänker iofs att han även har "liten" maskin för de större fälten, han och hans familj flyttade dit för några år sedan och startade upp sitt jordbruk...
