Location: Batad, Philippines
While I was visiting the amazing Batad rice terraces in the Philippines, I was able to help a family pound rice for dinner.
It was a lot of work.
After taking turns pounding the rice grains with giant mallets in a big stone basin, he would place all the rice in a flat basket. A couple of fast shaking jerks would separate the grains of rice from the roughage.
The chickens had the pleasant privilege of eating the rice chaff!
