Hopefully these FAQs will help you with some of the questions you may have.


There are a number of outlets selling Austrian scythes. You may wish to look at Scythe Cymru and The Scythe Shop.

I have a limited number of scythes available for hire but this must be booked at the same time that you arrange your course, in order for me to ensure I can provide you with the scythe you need. Get in touch with me to discuss your requirements.

Bookings direct with me

Payments can be made by BACS or cheque. Details will be sent to you when we have arranged your course or scythe hire.

Payment is made at the time of booking, unless arranged otherwise. This secures your course or scythe hire.

Don’t worry! Life happens. If you find yourself needing to cancel then I shall endeavour to offer a full refund.  Of course, the earlier you let me know, the better. You will appreciate that Joy of Scything is a small, independent business. N.B. If you have booked a course direct with a venue, then refunds will be subject to their terms & conditions.
