I have a +or - 2 acre piece around the house that I have kept mowed with a 18" push mower in the past and with work, family, and a small farm I just can't do it anymore. It's purpose is a multi- purpose yard and free range chicken pasture. I'm at the point that I feel I need a riding mower or a scythe and some sheep.
Please help me . All thoughts are appreciated.
I use an American pattern scythe to mow about 1/10 acre. It takes me about thirty minutes each time it needs to be mowed.

It's not that it's to hard. It's more of there is only so many hours in the day and so many other things that my units of energy need devoted to before grass cutting grass.
I understand there just isn't enough hours in the day. I imagine a scythe would take longer.
When driving through Lancaster, PA it's not uncommon to see Amish woman and children pushing old reel mowers across enormous plots of land.. Just a thought.
I have one of fiskars models and love it.
