Peasents and surfs were the lowest rank in the fuedal systym.

There were different ranks of peasants, the lowest were surfs because they were barly better than a slave. The peasents/surfs were mostly farmers. Their main crops were corn, wheat, and beans. They lived on land around the mannor house. Their lifestyle was extreamly harsh and hard. Peasants lived in cruck houses. Surfs lived at the manor and never left it. Religion was very important to the peasents. Children did not go to school.
