The Best of Country Calendar 2016

The Best of Country Calendar 2016


Welcome to another collection of some of our favourite episodes from the 2016 series of Hyundai Country Calendar.

Once again our crews have travelled throughout the country to bring you these wonderful stories of some interesting and dedicated people who live here.

In this collection we meet a Northland family with a booming business specialising in manuka honey, a retired couple who embarked on a new venture milking goats and making organic cheese after becoming bored in their retirement and a family who work the wild waters around Stewart Island, chasing paua, kina and blue cod. We visit actor Sam Neill who has immersed himself in a second career, growing grapes and making wine in Central Otago. On Great Barrier Island, we meet a market gardening couple who grow top-quality heritage fruit and veges using organic methods and a couple who use traditional draught horses for all their farm tasks on a Canterbury high country station. This season of Country Calendar really does cover the length and breadth of New Zealand.

We hope you enjoy viewing these stories as much as we have enjoyed producing them
