Peasant life in the 19th century
In the middle of the 19th century there were about 90 farms in Savognin. Most of the inhabitants were full-time farmers. All kept animals and cultivated fields and gardens for self-sufficiency. Cows, pigs, sheep and chickens supplied dairy products, eggs and meat. In addition to cereals and potatoes, hemp and flax were grown. The income came from the cattle trade. This was used to buy products that could not be produced by themselves, such as salt, sugar, coffee, flour and tools. Most of the tools, clothes and shoes were made in the village.
1880 there were 504 people living in Savognin. In addition to the peasants, there were about 50 people with other professions, such as carpenters, butchers, servants and maids.
