As everyone knows, rye is a grass grown like a cereal. My father told me that until the end of the 19th century, this plant was grown to make bread. Seed yield is low: from 15 to 20 quintals per hectare. What is remarkable in this cereal is the length of its straw: between 1.80 m and 2.20 m! At that time, the threshing is done either to the scourge or to the carousel, so the straw is not beaten, only is the bearer end of the spike.

This straw will be used to make different objects. During the winter evenings, men usually take care of several months to build pieces of basketry by tying rye straw with bramble bars. At the museum, you can admire the work it took to make these two round reserves of 150 litres each with a lid made to the exact size of the tank. We do not know the exact date of their manufacture, but it is no exaggeration to think
