Film: Hand Methods of Harvesting Hay

Thanks to a grant from the National Film Preservation Foundation, three films documenting hay harvesting techniques have been digitized by the UVM Libraries. ┬áThese silent films are a result of rural sociologist Robert M. Carter’s 1940s study at the UVM Agricultural Experiment Station. Carter researched the efficiency and costs of various haying techniques, from older hand harvesting methods to mechanized processes. The films capture farming equipment and techniques rarely seen today.

Watch all the Hay Harvesting films streaming online at the UVM Libraries’ Center for Digital Initiatives.
