Country Calendar Stories from Our Rural Heartland by Matt Philp, Rob Suisted

From its first field report in a Central Otago apricot orchard in 1966, and primarily broadcast as a 14-minute news show for farmers, Country Calendar is now New Zealand’s longest-running television series, with more than half a million people tuning in every week. This year saw Country Calendar turn 50, and this book celebrates the milestone by revisiting 15 families who have appeared on the show during the last decade or so – and, in some cases, whose properties have featured more than once during the 50 years. The featured stories all reflect the flavour and character that has made Country Calendar so beloved by its rural and urban audience. It’s a diverse collection, reflecting the varied and changing face of rural New Zealand, but each chapter is peopled with hardworking, passionate folk who love what they do, love their properties and love sharing their stories.
