The Farming Show began broadcasting 18 years ago today.
It has come a long way from very modest beginnings on Hokanui Gold. It’s now broadcast nationwide on Newstalk ZB’s provincial stations and Radio Sport (except in Wellington and Auckland). It’s also streamed live and you can listen to anything you’ve missed from links on the website.
I interviewed the man behind the mic, Jamie Mackay, for ATS magazine last year. You can read the story of him and the show in from farm to Farming Show on pages 14 & 15 of the magazine.
