Kiwi Farmers’ Guide To Life: Rural Tales from the Heartland
Kiwi Farmers’ Guide to Life does just that, telling stories of New Zealand farmers, agribusiness entrepreneurs and even a couple of scientists. Each one knows about sweat, quick thinking and the importance of a sense of humour in the world of agriculture.
From a dive into farming history to a probe of modern agri issues, Kiwi Farmers’ Guide to Life shows farmers at their finest and in some cases – at their most vulnerable. At heart, these stories explore why farmers do what they do, rather than how. So, put on your gumboots and let’s take that road less travelled.
