A Hunter Valley farmer has spent more than 12 hours trapped under a tractor.

The seven-tonne tractor rolled onto the 62 year old's foot on a property near Lake Glenbawn east of Scone at about 9am Monday.

He called for help, but no one found him until about 9pm last night.

The man was treated by paramedics at the scene before being airlifted by the Westpac Rescue Helicopter to Tamworth Hospital at around midnight.

He's in a stable condition with lower leg and ankle injuries.
