Project Description

Used for rendering down root crops for feeding livestock, this cast iron farming implement is a historical piece of equipment. Leaning against a holly tree, the owner could carry it no further. Now completely overwhelmed growth in the temperate climate of Kerry is rapid – I would estimate it has been here between 20 to 40 years. The surrounding farmland is now entirely given over to rough grazing, with no sign of root crops anywhere. Sadly the farmhouse has also been abandoned.
