I've been farming for over a decade, and can concur that agriculture is not for the faint of hearts, although these sancestors were dependant upon it as a means of survival. I cannot imagine growing anything without the use of plastic, as I integrate plastic for efficient irrigation methods, season extension, and solar mulch to prevent weeds. I am currently sitting inside of a greenhouse in the middle of a snow storm watching this video, just inchase the power goes out so I can kick on a generatoer and keep 100 chicks alive in the 19degree weather. This lifestyle required hundreds of generations worth of mistakes in order to survive in tandem with nature's lack of empathy, a legacy art form that so many of us have forgotten in an era of convenience.

I've worked as a professional blacksmith, which some think is hard work, but I love doing it so it's almost meditative at times. As a type of artisan one would take broken metal things to, I've had farmers visit regularly. First, all blacksmiths are good arm wrestlers, but not as good as a farmer it seems. Secondly, every one walked in and knew where to stand to be safe and not to approach a 3000° forge! They were also proficient with the things I do, and would have been good smiths! It may seem boring bumpkin, but modern farmers are impressive people.

On a working farm you have to learn and master a wide variety of skill sets. Growing up on a working grain/livestock farm I take the needed skills in stride without a second thought. Outside the farm I enjoyed working with farm kids as young as 8 to 10. When doing a task they think ahead and use common sense and a task goes so much smoother. They know how to run tools correctly and don't have to be told every little move. Town people are good consumers and complainers about "hard" work.

i love hand made iron things, what a useful trade that seems to be... we used to have a blacksmith living on our property, my horse was always well shod. he knew a lot about horse's hooves, thier health etc. we had a welder artisan on the same road as well. he made our black iron(?) grillwork stair rails. A forge/ foundry is the place to work in a cold climate, especially in the old days or where there's not much other heat.... imo.
Warp DriveBy

@theCosmicQueen It can cut both ways, and sometimes in very unexpected ways! On hot very humid days, the best place to be is directly to the side of the forge, and to keep cool water on your clothes. The hotter air allows the water and sweat to evaporate and cool you down, it feels wonderfully comfortable compared to the swamp-@$$ I'd be feeling just five feet away! I can make great horseshoes, but that's all the farrier skill I have! They're awesome, and one of my teachers started that way. He had some methods and techniques I had never seen or read about and most smiths I meet hadn't known them either. Some were miles better than the way many of us typically do things, and the squashed stubby hammer many of them prefer is now my go to for scrollwork or graceful compound curves.

I come from a family of farmers; they are the most multitalented,, professional and proficient people I know; they can practically do anything with confidence. From veterinary care, heavy duty mechanics, welding, building houses, buildings , electrical work, fine carpentry, growing grain and produce , butchering, management and care of all farm animals to drywall installations and accounting. . Farmers work hard and do NOT specialise in any one thing, but hundreds of things.

I was sad that my great grandmother never taught me how to work her old loom. My mother gently scolded me not to press her, as it was a laborious process that Grandma might not be up to. Now I understand better. I'm so glad she taught me to crochet. I carry her with me daily in that art. This video helps me respect her even more.

My family farmed in the Dorset area of England back during the late 1400s, then they came to North America in the early 1500s and continued to farm. My family farmed until the 1950s when my great-grandfather sold most of the land. I have one great-aunt who still runs her own small soybean farm, but other people do all the work since she's just too old now (she's leaving them the farm in her will). My grandfather was born in 1930 when that part of the family had (primarily) a dairy farm. It was hard work but he does miss it. He's 93 years old now, and his doctor is betting he will live to be over 100. Grandpa has said he hopes that Heaven is the old dairy farm because he misses it so much. I showed him all of their historical farming series and he just LOVED them all! I got so many stories out of him about the old days when he was growing up while we watched this whole series. ❤

There's some things- like the steam bending you get moisture from the soil too but yeah, a lot of Vermont farms kept things this way to cut costs for as long as possible and those moving in to play farmer def took advantage of the extra man hours it takes/they were willing to give for a long time. Most haven't forgotten though. If I were younger I'd enjoy doing this again but the saying "What makes you stronger" was edited by the wealthy; it actually goes: "What doesn't kill you, maims you".

I just love these.. truly a Ruth kindred spirit 😁.. I’ve been actively learning so much about these skills and historical knowledge for over 30 years .. The UK really is an example of 13000 years of history and the unusual circumstances of their weather and geography and long long history has made stone and Bronze Age stuff available everywhere and after then, a bit of everything in between is somewhere over there.. I absolutely love it.. New England has some perks, but nothing remotely like what they have over there.. 😂 I’d probably spend every waking free moment trying to visit every single stone circle or hill fort or whatever next that I could get to.. 😝 lol

You get used to the hygiene or lack thereof. Do it long enough and it becomes just life, normal, not novel. I learned this by living with the Swartzentruber Amish. If everyone has a slight manurey smell mixed with the lye soap used for everything including your weekly bath in a tin tub, and everyone is used to it, it’s no matter. The novelty wears off once you’re no longer a guest, but a functioning member of the household, expected to pull your weight.

Tudor life without children, the elderly, or the sick. As well as without criminals, marriage, or true consequence of breaking the rules. What a time to live where you can live out and explore your most adored time period under the protection of a modern world. It feels like a very innocent way to go back in time. Considering all of those aspects are a part of the Tudor farmers history, wow they worked hard! This is fascinating, love the series

I understand that the hard times for medieval farmers were traumatizing by modern standards, but the times of prosperity seem so simple and lovely. In my head, I would love to live by the land and make high quality goods from scratch, but I know that my soft, burger-acclimatized body probably couldn't handle it! But man, imagine living in a time where you could see all the stars at night!

The pig thing....They're very smart and I knew when they built that pen they'd dig underneath and luckily they don't have frigid winters cuz that'd still be drafty. U want a bigger log halfburied- so the Littles don't dig under it-then u can nitch the diagonal posts and lay whatever up on a regular small hut-like building. Build it against a bank or stone so it's only got one open end they're very warm n cozy if there's plenty of hay in the winter.

I recently watched a video about a 1620 farm brought back to life for a year by a team of five in the Welsh border area, entitled Tales from the Green Valley. I found it to be very informative and I then decided to watch this video of medieval farm life. Many differences but also similarities.(They had long horned oxen - not cows). What I also appreciated (as an elderly Roman Catholic, with a interest in history) was the influence of the church in every day life generally. I very much enjoyed learning this. Yes they were hard workers and it took a lot of energy to survive the rigours of those times.

Tales from Green Valley was the first series the team worked on for the BBC, and they went through quite a few. Unfortunately, by the Victorian era, faith was much less involved, so this one is the only other really talking about our faith in the same way.

No plastic, consumer shit, no sweets or fizzy pop but clean water from a spring that tasted marvellous and all the beautiful animals. I had so much fun, it was hard work to, especially harvesting....still great.

Most people wouldn't even survive as a modern peasant farmer. I'm kinda sad that these kind of programs didn't become a hype. There was a short stint of shows like Manor House and The Edwardian Country House (although thinking about it now, that could have been the same show aired in different regions under a different name), but there's like 10 of those kind of "historical reality" shows, that had real people assume the life of a person in history. It was very very VERY interesting to see how quickly people assumed their roles, especially to be honest the people who were given a "upper class"/"luckier storyline" role, and how blind, and cruel, they became towards the hard lives of everyone who had a "lower class"/"not as lucky backstory" role.

Most of us get our foods from corporate farmers whose only objective is yield. Gone are the days when good farming practices where the quality of the land was an essential part of quality of the food. Of course some can claim organic, but even some of them can barely, legally, make these claims. Since most of us are ill equipped to do this work we continue to fall into worse health. It is a reality of our times.

I live & work on a fairly modern farm... and everybody underestimates the work, even with modern tools. It is the work, 24/7, never a day off and never a vacation, because the animals need their daily food and stables need to be tend to, the crops need work, your farm is big and needs attention, you can't imagine how the hours of work fly by. It never, ever ends. That is absolutely exhausting, you can never close the door and let the work behind you. I can imagine how hard it was to tend a farm, when litteraly everything ment handwork and elbowgreese...

Grew up on a farm, went into college educated corporate wageslave lifestyle for 10 years, went back to the farm. I much prefer the farm, your work means something and produces something. Staring at numbers in excel and writing sql queries isn't living. At this point in our society living on a farm instead of a suburb/apartment/condo is a luxury unless you literally have no soul and are a bugman.

As I watch Ruth make lard, I am also making it. I have bacon in water to extract the fat, and then I'll let the bacon crisp. The fat will be partly saved, and partly used for softening my vegetables for tomorrow's lunch. Once the water is evaporated the bacon will crisp as the water is drawn off. Then I add the onions, and the beans and soften them all, and then some water and seasoning. I know I would not have survived. I'd be burned for a witch, because i am one.

I have seen these actors years back on Cable TV History TV channel shows. It seems though, that without the Cable Television agenda at play, that the actual quality of the shows they make have gone up drastically. I have noticed re-used footage put into these YT shows. And yeah, they get re-titled and re-uploaded, cut and mixed to create 'new' episodes A LOT. But for a crew that was used to the budget and all that came with mainstream cable.. They need to get that extra funding for their budget somehow. So re-cycled footage is a fair way to save money and still make fresh content. And yeah, it is quality and worth re watching as I have on so many.

I have really enjoyed all of their shows. It’s pretty sad to me that most people 40 and under have next to zero history and junior high and high school. So many people miss out because of that when a basic history class would get you started and you could decide what you like then research yourself. I guess I really love them all so much is because I love history. 1:37:08

@Leca Ramona I feel that same sentiment. I burn though historical fiction genre novels like witches in the 1400s. My preferred time periods to escape to are between 200 A.D - 1450 A.D with specific interests from a variety of other periods all to specific to be worth typing out. I am 33 though. But maybe I was lucky to have two decent history teachers I can remember. And also recall picking up historical fiction novels found laying around the home which my mother had finished with in times I had no unread books of my own. I agree though, and if anything, modern history programs in schools are aimed at 'erasing' certain aspects of our histories and cultures. Or nullifying them at best.

If one of them was seriously injured which wouldn't be hard to happen idk what would happen. Unless you had children that you could put to work or you had really caring neighbors i guess you would be doomed! 😮😢

You're a "cup half empty" kinda gal, aren't you? My Grandmother WALKED from Berlin to a farm near Hamburg, between oncoming armies, with an 18 month old on her hip and a 9 year daughter, at the end of WW2, which is about 310 km . . . We were definitely tougher back then. I know my late Grandmother held "Where there is life, there is hope!" as a guiding maxim.

What did she just add to her sheep's milk that she had heated in preparation for making cheese? Was it honey? Or vinegar? She didn't say & I'm really curious they usually give precise instructions but she failed to say what she was using 😢

She added Rennet, a curdling agent. you can also use nettle juice but it isn't quite as effective.

Another wonderful remembrance, a reminder of those times. Plus there are the specific skills lost from a time when we were in far closer touch with the earth, our land, and our environment. The systems that harnessed the people to religion, which took advantage of the people, not so much. But I love knowing what the life was like for the 'peasant' farmer, and how so much had to be made from local sources, or paid for with higher costs. Dealing with the minimum was a condition of life every day. Could we do it these days? And should we not keep it all alive?

2.31.30 😂👍 great example of the poor people actually getting the better quality, high fiber more nutrients (rye etc mixed in) while the elite got "fancy white" but less nutritious bread. Score👍😂 ....love it when these examples turn up....as with many things supposedly showing status...good fun example that imitation by some high fashion brand of the IKEA bag 😂 omfg I laughed so hard at that. Also one site we excavated had some monks buried, they often showed signs of poor health due to obesity....greed did not do them any favour. 2.31 ish so it was airy ....but chewing is important to release enzymes to better digest your food/extract nutrients. Again, a negative.

1:55:24 IT wasn't the alcohol in the beer that killed bacteria and made it safe to drink. Most of their daily beer barely had any alcohol in it. It was the heat in the process of making beer that killed bacteria and made it safe to drink. I can't believe y'all got that one so very wrong!
