Winter Harvest is a Norse myth technology in Age of Mythology that is available to worshipers of Skadi and can be researched at the Ox Cart. Once researched, it increases Gatherer and Dwarf farming rate by +20%.

Note that while the improvement to the gather rate 20%, but farmers periodically "wander" their Farm while gathering, so the more practical result is about a 15% enhancement.

Mythology[edit | edit source]

Skadi was a great huntress, traveling her icy home of Thrymheim on snowshoes and carrying a bow with which she brought down much game. After her stormy and eventually dissolved marriage to the Aesir Njord, she married Ull, the god of justice, skiing and agriculture.

"A seventh I will sing to thee. If on a mountain high frost should assail thee, deadly cold shall not thy carcase injure, nor draw thy body to thy limbs."

-- The Poetic Eddas, The Lay of Hyndla
