Life in the farmhouse didn’t have set hours. Instead of using clocks, they worked from dawn to nightfall. The strong union with the natural world established work patterns and working hours. The seasons of the year determined the work to be carried out in the vegetable garden, stable and forest as well as in the house. Days were longer or shorter according to the daylight hours, which were established by the summer or winter solstice. All these factors determined the daily work.
