A high country farmer showcases New Zealand’s finest landscapes and sights on a farm tour with a twist.

Ian Hayman hosts Quirky Farm Tours from Tasman Downs Station, where he shows tourists scenery from The Hobbit Films.

But he’s no ordinary Kiwi bloke – but rather one with a shoe ferris wheel and a mannequin named Robert who helps him on farm.

He joins Rural Exchange to discuss his tours.
