Food production is in large part hunter/gatherer with a great deal of effort being expended on agriculture to prepare for the coming winter. Sheep, cows, and pigs are not being harvested to increase their long term numbers.
Rain has been barely adequate to raise the crops that normally grow in southern England. The peasants are predicting that the late summer will probably not have enough rain to allow the crops to grow to full maturity before harvest time.
Materials in abundance: grass, land
Materials that are lacking: soft wood, stone, water

The village of Glastonbury is composed of roughly 100 buildings built in a rough semi-circle around the entrance to the unfinished Glastonbury Abbey grounds. The town has a number of small businesses at its center, specifically 3 inns (the Grey Fox, King’s Cupper, and the Cock and the Crow), a blacksmith, a dry goods store, a granary that doubles as a bakery, and a grocery. The village center also has a well and a stockade (virtually never used). The streets in the town do not yet have names.
