Ernie then takes you for a drive around his extensive kumara farm on his tractor powered train with carriages that have been fashioned from oil drums painted with matching colours of his kumara crops. On the tour you pass local collections of his memorabilia and some of his unique creations and you visit New Zealand’s smallest church.
Following the tour you have an option of morning /afternoon tea and tasting some of May's home cooking using kumara as an ingredient.
