With the help of some grain, a drone, and sheep, a NSW farmer has creatively paid tribute to his aunt after not being able to travel to her funeral in Brisbane.

Ben Jackson from Guyra, on the NSW’s Northern Tablelands has gone viral after creating a heart-shaped formation of sheep and filming it using a drone.

“I just hope when I did it she poked her head through the clouds and had a bit of a peep,” he told 9News.

The video – which was played at his aunt’s funeral – was accompanied by Simon and Garfunkel’s ‘Bridge over Troubled Waters’.
