The Best of Country Calendar 2017 v.1
Our crews have enjoyed another great year travelling around New Zealand to bring you stories of inspiring and committed rural people.
Now it’s time to share some of our favourites.
Among those you will meet in this collection are farmers coping with the 2016 Kaikoura earthquake and others dealing with the vagaries of the seasons, from summer drought in Northland to a cold Catlins southern spring. You’ll also meet a Coromandel fisherman who is focused on sustainable practices and a South Canterbury eccentric whose clothing, alone, makes him stand out from the norm. Others are pioneering new ground, such as milking buffalo or turning a mixed cropping farm into a world-leading barley malting business.
They are a great cross-section of the farmers and characters that we have enjoyed meeting this year and we know you will enjoy seeing their stories.
