I've just watched this episode now and it was absolutely devastating to see - so obvious she wanted to go back to her family and leave the farm which is one thing but then the way that she hijacked his family's entire history is something else. I'm so sad that all of that heritage would be lost to the family because of one person's selfishness. And then the way that she acted as though it were her family history at every opportunity!!! It was totally nauseating. The first time that I have actively disliked anyone I've seen on Country Calendar...

It was with great sadness I watched the documentary on Longford Station. How any mother could possibly think that the children would get more opportunities living in a town or city was puzzling If they dont want the option of boarding school where they could get the best education available in N.Z. they could have a live in tutor. They have an idyllic lifestyle that would be the envy of 98% of families living in the city where the worry of drugs in schools is a major concern to all caring parents. I felt that there has to be more to the selling up of a property that has been in the family for 5 generations. Perhaps Mrs Preston wants her share so that she can return to Australia DONT SELL Mr Preston You love the land that was obvious and you would be miserable and unhappy living in a town or city. I live in the city and believe me I would swap my lifestyle for yours in an instant - be strong and do what you feel is best for your family

Susan Preston should be ashamed of herself for forcing her husband from his family farm. I have never been so angry as I was watching that disgusting woman talk about how hard life is on the farm etc and basically takeover the episode anyone would think that it was her familys farm not his. Geoff Preston should do himself a favour get some self respect and send her to live in Dunedin by herself or better still send her back to Australia.
The final straw for me was seeing her go up and accept the award for being on the family farm for 150 years, what a joke.

This episode tonight was a sad sad tale, with the moral to choose your wife carefully! The poor guy having to sell his family's farm! She clearly wore the pants in that relationship! Did you see his lip quiver in that last scene? And using the kids as an excuse... oh dear!
