B5. On The Farm

On The Farm

There were many duties on the farm, then as now. The animals depended on getting their daily care. Some had both reindeer, goats and cattle that had to be milked. An important milk product was cheese. Sheep’s wool was spun and weaved amongst other things for Sami boot ribbons, clothes, bedclothes, and a sail for the boat.

There was invariably something to be made or repaired. Equipment and tools required maintenance, either it was the horse harness or, like today, the tractor.
