Over 150 years ago Frederick Trapski arrived in New Zealand from Poland. In 1864 he married Alicia McKenna from County Cork, and they lived in a settlement for Polish workers near Mosgiel. Their son purchased Carse Head in 1896, which has been farmed by five generations of the Trapski-Pullar-McIntosh descendants. In 2006 this superb Southland property, Carse Head and Crichton Park farms, was a recipient of The New Zealand Century Farm and Station Award. This book provides a fascinating account of this farming knowledge and appreciation of the land and comprehensive family trees of the Trapski and Pullar descendants. The narrative provides a riveting insight into the world of Otago and Southland farming families.
