Making hay has always been hard work, just about the hardest work on a farm. Spanning 150 years this book tells the story of the labour and heartbreak suffered by five families struggling to make the hay that fed their livestock, a story not just about grass, alfalfa, and clover but also about sweat and fears, toil and loss.
