What is a middle ages demesne?

On each of his manors, a knight (baron) would allow someof the farm land to be held by the peasants for growing their own crops, while he retained other strips of land as his own "demesne". Naturally he did not work this land himself.The peasants were obligated by their feudal service to work on the baron's demesne land two or three days every week, raising food for the manorial household; the remaining days (except Sundays) they could work on their own strips of land - growing food for themselves.The demesne land was usually distributed among the strips held by the peasants, making it easier for them to work on both.The "tithe" (a tax of one tenth of the crop levied by the Church) applied both to the peasants' lands and to the demesne land.
