The Corn Harvest in Ireland in the 1950s

Vintage Farming Ireland – Threshing Oats 

Once the corn stack had been built and a thresher was available to thresh the corn it was threshing time. In the 1950s threshers went from farm to farm separating the grain from the straw. In this video we show the thresher at work, showing how the stack of corn is fed into the thresher. This video should provide a short lesson on how farming was carried out in Irish farms a generation ago.
