The Hefted Farmer
This book acts as a good example of hefted work as it is written, edited and published within a hefted community. The Hefted Farmer is jointly authored by Susan Haywood and Barbara Crossley – the actual title comes from a champion of rural causes, HRH The Prince of Wales.
SUSAN Haywood is a veterinary pathologist who has spent her professional life teaching vet students at Liverpool University.
BARBARA Crossley has always been very interested in all kinds of social history, and fifteen years ago joined the Ambleside Oral History Society, one of the oldest in the country.
