Newspaper Article 1967 – Farming Brothers

FARMING BROTHERS [rest of title missing]

Messrs S.A. and M.J. Small farm a clean bit of sheep country on the Waimarama road that is deep rooted in the history of the industry in the province.

Both are popular members of society. Because of their active interest in the beach races at Waimarama, their friends sometimes refer to them as “gentlemen riders.”

Mr Stan Small, the elder brother, genial and with a ready wit, has two loves, the farm and the sport of bowling. He has a persuasive way of inducing others to take up the sport that in a less leisurely age might have cost Sir Francis Drake his job and British history many extra pages.

Messrs Stan and Morris Small are responsible to the A. A. Small Estate in the management of a family enterprise. That they serve well with a realistic policy that has stood the test of time.

They conduct themselves cheerfully. The present depressed times, for instance, gained only brief reference when the material for this article was obtained.

Like Drake, the Small brothers owe something to the sea. Their grandfather served before the mast. That was how he came to this country.
