Tricky and a bit confusing puzzle

Poor farmer went to the farmers market to sell his corn. He had only one sack so he put barley into one half of the sack tied it in the middle and filled the other half with wheat.

He found a buyer at the market who unfortunately wanted only barley which was at the bottom. The buyer had also only one sack and he didn’t want to switch sacks as his one was bigger.

How did they get the barley from one sack to the other without pouring the grain somewhere else?


You can turn the sack inside out.


They put wheat into buyer’s sack. Than they tied it and turned it inside out. Than barley was poured in.

They untied the pocket with wheat and poured it back to the farmer’s sack.
