The land in the city was arable, which made farming possible there. Scratch ploughs and sokhas were used to cultivate the land. In 1975 in Biarescie in the cultural layer of the XIII century, archaeologists discovered something unique – an oak scratch plough, the only one in Europe up until that time. The scratch plough is a piece of agricultural equipment similar to the plough, which had replaced the hand hoe. The primary function of a scratch plough was to loosen the soil. It had a wooden base, a metal tip ploughshare, and a yoke to which farmers attached animals to pull it. The beasts of burden of the scratch plough in Biarescie were horses.
Archaeologists also unearthed a heavily worn-out metal tip (point), which indicates that the citizens did not make them for selling to the villagers but to cultivate the soil for a long time. It is the most worn out point of all the whole points found by archaeologists in the territory of Belarus.
