An interesting idea. It's just what you consider the ritual to be. Are you investing some of your clan/family magic in the fields? If you do, you've got less to share with the neighbours. Is it just sitting around and chanting a bit? With this being Glorantha, I don't think you get away with that.

No wine, just two days without caffeine...
