A Year On The Field
First Year: Common Wheat - Second Year: Flax
- Third Year: Potatoes

About the Project

What We Do

The "A Year On The Field" Project seeks to exchange knowledge about cultivation of one crop through the centuries and in many parts of the world, powered by diverse museum sites, living history farms and also commercial farms (conventional or organic).


Our project was initiated in Autumn 2021 and during our pilot year (2021–2022) the chosen crop was common wheat.


The second year (2022–2023) of the project was focused on flax – a versatile and very important field crop worldwide.

In the third year (2024), everything revolves around the potato – one of the world's main food sources, which offers many interesting aspects.



Sites and farms participating in the project are developing a unique database on various cultivation traditions, regional seed varieties and traction
methods: animal or tractor powered.  

Participating sites also network on a deep level across countries and distance.


We aim to raise public interest in agriculture: its historical implications and for modern sustainable food production.
