Video: A la Yerba
The video “A la Yerba” shows one of the most typical “family jobs” done in Asturias.
During some summer days the grass that will feed the cattle during the winter months is cut, dried, collected and stored.
Since the days in which the work has to be done are few and the grass to be cut is a lot, it is necessary for the whole family to participate in this task.
It is common for several families to help cut all available grass on the different farms. This ensures that all available grass is collected and that everyone has food for their animals during the winter season.
