ABSTRACT
The article features the farmland of Ian Cummings located at Hihitahi, south of Waiouru in New Zealand. The farmland is described as a climatically challenging environment. It is a typical example of farming environment that exists at the north eastern corner of the Middle Districts region, with elevated tablelands that slope from south-west to north-east. These comprise hard sedimentary mudstones capped with bands of shell rock and limestone, which are in turn draped in a thick layer of soils derived from volcanic ash deposits many metres deep in places.
