This is an open air museum of tools and machines used at a time when work on the field was done manually. »Ralo« is a branch with a hook, which grubbed in the ground. It did not turn the soil but only loosened it. First it was pulled by people, later by animals.
The plough evolved from »ralo«. There are many types: wooden ones, metal ones, two-side ploughs etc. They were pulled by one or two cattle.
»Brana« which had different shapes and sizes was used for loosening and levelling the soil.
»Black kitchen« is still used for drying meat. Inside there are objects which had been used until 1950.
Over 300 machines are exhibited and the Primecs strive to preserve this part of Slovenian cultural heritage.
They invite schoolchildren and students interested in farming and machine construction
to visit them and maybe cooperate with them.
They offer home-made bread with lard, spring water and must in autumn.www.jeruzalem.si
