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 provided 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 made by oneself such as salt, sugar, coffee, flour and tools. Most of the tools as well as clothes and shoes were made in the village.
In 1880, 504 people lived in Savognin. In addition to the farmers, there were about 50 people with other professions, such as carpenters, butchers, servants and maids.
