Abstract:

On their journey through rural New Zealand in 2006, journalist Vaughan Yarwood and photographer Arno Gasteiger spent time with farming families who cover the range from Waikato dairying to Canterbury cropping to Southland sheep farming. They discuss the issues that preoccupy New Zealand farmers today: innovation, productivity, export, conservation, succession, science, efficiency, rural land access and more. Their farming experiences range from Erewhon station, which still uses Clydesdales and drays to get to back country musters, to young farmers who are both keen conservationists but also driven by scientific rigour as they seek efficiencies. Farm is threaded through with references to the great sweep of our farming history, and takes a contemporary, lyrical and fresh approach to this country's cornerstone industry. Our heartland has never looked more magnificent than in this book, which is full of glorious land scapes and also portraits of the remarkable men and women who farm this land.
