Post 4. Raccard / Barn

The raccard, the second building on the left of the lane, is built on pilotis to avoid allowing mice to get to the wheat. The raccard stood a little apart from the houses, unlike the granary.

The greniers sometimes belonged to eight different owners, whereas the raccards were less divided, because more space was needed to store the rye, barley and wheat. The raccard beams were not too closely placed so that air could penetrate the structure and prevent moulding of the grains.

In winter the farmers threshed the grain and the noise from the scourge could be heard far and wide.
