Ashburton farm recovery likely to take years

From Sunday Morning, 7:10 am on 6 June 2021

Chris and Anne-Marie Allen have owned Anna Dale Farm for nearly 30 years. It's a 300-hectare farm at Ashburton Forks and was severely damaged by flood waters over the last week. Anne-Marie joins the show to look at the damage the flood has done to the farm and the years of work the couple have ahead of them to restore the farm, which they say was looking the best it's ever looked before the weather took hold.
