David Cooper on Thrashing
We’d also be joined at harvest time and at hay-making time and at thrashing time.
Thrashing is when they get the grain out of the corn and that was done by a special machine which I’ll get into in a minute, and so there would be quite a little, there’d be three or four of them, would come and help.
They’d always help us on the farm or local farms, they’d always live locally. So lots of tales of yore, yeah, used to be quite funny some of them.
