Longing for maize harvest?

Traditional maize harvest still gets families together


Fairfood accompanied the maize harvest day with a family from Sever do Vouga, in the center of Portugal. Everyone works hard to pick up the maximum amount of cobs, singing and laughing, snacking childhood flavors, carefully storing the corn in the wood and stone haystacks known as ‘palheiros’, and participating in the traditional defoliation, a very special moment of reunion and socialization, celebrating the gifts of nature and preparing for winter.
