The Best of Hyundai Country Calendar
2015Book - 2015
"Once again our crews have travelled throughout the country to bring you these wonderful tales of some of the amazing, interesting and dedicated people who live here. Through the stories in this collection we meet a Hamilton family whose business specialises in hand-made gouda cheese, the secrets of which were learnt from monks in a monastery on the Dutch-Belgian border fifty years earlier; a couple who swapped the corporate life in Sydney to set up a free- range pig farm in Horowhenua and a pilot who has returned to farming after 26 years as a helicopter pilot. We visit Te Kuta Station, a sheep and beef farm in a remote spot called French Pass; an 11 year old boy chasing his dream to be one of the country's best young cattle handlers and an alpaca stud on Banks Peninsula where they are breeding the rare black suri - valued for their long silky fleece. From a Northland dairy farmer who also writes a weekly magazine column, to a Southland couple who collect and identify heritage apple trees, this season of Country Calendar really does cover the length and breadth of New Zealand"--Container insert.
