This chapter discusses the efforts of farmers to save agriculture after the Black Death. The first solution to the crisis in agriculture was to put former arable land down to grass. With this, dairy goods began to gain attention. Moreover, when landowners found themselves with idle grassland, the idea of the rabbit warren, deer parks, pigeons, and fish ponds became ideal solutions.

Keywords:   Black Death, agriculture, farmers, grass land, dairy goods, rabbit warren, deer parks, pigeons, fish ponds
