Reminiscences of 1948
Almost forty years ago, a Gasbourne youth travelled down to Flock House, near Bulls, for a year’s intensive training in farming skills. He regularly wrote back to his family, describing in minute detail his life at the farm learning centre. His parents kept the letters, not just for sentimental reasons, but because of the insight they gave into post-war farming methods, and above all because of the colourful and literate style in which they were written. Now published for the first time, they bring to life a bygone era while providing a valuable document on the history of New Zealand farming.
