Romanian Village Farming 9th to 16th September 2019

Hay is at the base of almost all traditional meat & dairy farm products – even to the farmyard chickens eating grasshoppers brought into the yard with the new hay crop. Hay – especially cut with a scythe, has shaped Romania’s rural cultural landscape and resulted in enormous biodiversity of flowering plants, insects & birds. Other important & ecosystem shaping farming activities include grazing and cutting (shredding/pollarding) trees for leaf hay and for fencing without wire.

Feedback from Stuart Graham, SNH, NET4 2018: I thoroughly enjoyed the training
trip to Latvia. I cannot believe how much we
managed to fit into our week and the attention to
detail to the arrangements from our host (Andis)
was impeccable. The quality of all the individuals
we met was of the highest quality and they were
from the top levels of their respective organisations
and devoted their time to share their knowledge.
Our group stuck together well and we therefore
learned from each other as well as our hosts. We
also got a great insight to Latvian customs,
tourism, diet/foods, history as well as landscape,
wildlife and conservation.
