Farming in the old days

Back in the old days farmers took ther animals out in the forrest every summer. The bait in the village would not be enugth for them.
The farmer buildt a small cottage and a barn in the forrest, 10-30 km from the village, and a farming maid lived ther from june untill october taking care of the animals, milking cows, sheeps and goats.She made cheese, butter and whey cheese. There could be several cottages in the neighborhood, just like a small village.
About once a week some of the farmers went up to the place to fetch the products.
In these days almost every one of the places are abandoned. Just a few still got some animal visitors in the summer.
