Post 13. Raccard

The raccard was used to store rye, wheat and other cereals. Its construction, which dates back to 1700, was less precise than the « grenier » because the passage of air between the beams was important to air the grain and prevent it from moulding.

The grain was stored, first on the balconies, so as to dry and mature, and, once ready, it was beaten with a scourge. Some barns had two functions because they had a floor for wheat and another for foodstuffs.

The granary was called “lo Guerni” in dialect and the raccard was “lo raha.” The raccards had fewer owners than the greniers. Inside such buildings, there were sometimes separations for the various owners.
