Ive seen it over here in the East, tourists tearing about in fields, the farmer has every right to try and stop them in my book.

Its a nuisance when you are stuck behind a slow moving convoy of 12 or so vehicles. Not the worst thing in the world but still annoying.

Tearing over a farmer's crops, might make them a bit angry.

We in the UK when we went over farmland Always sought permission beforehand. I think it is the correct procedure to do so.
All things are possible

I'd be bloody fuming if they were my crops! I was talking from perspective of a car driver on main roads.

A convoy of 10 off road vehicles could cause a lot of damage to a farmers fields particularly if the ground in the fields is wet. I’m not surprised that he was angry.
Though perhaps he and his employee shouldn’t have been so violent.
But equally the tourists should have left if he asked then to go.
