Transylvanian farms, a blast from the past!

Anyone who knows me, knows that I am no expert on farming practices. However, I do know shear craziness when I see it, and cruising past on a train and seeing people cutting grass with skythes and tilling the land by hand definitely fits the bill for a new level of craziness. I even saw some people cruising along with a tractor, but instead of spreading what I assume was seed from the back of the tractor via an automated system, they had five people hanging off the back spreading it by hand!? I felt like I was viewing some sort of strange Amish like group, but in reality these were just regular old Romanian farmers looking to make a buck.
