We know everyday's a struggle against weeds, weather, pests and fluctuating markets...

But we also know the farming lifestyle it's absolutely worth it.

That's why we're passionate about providing the solutions you need, so you can get back to enjoying it more.

Our story starts from humble beginings > which you can read all about here.

Serving the rural community is in our blood. It's how we started and what we've always done.

And it's still how we carry on today.

We know your biggest priority is having the right product at the right time.

That's why you can rely on us having stock even when others don't.

Our customers know we'll have them covered so they can get the job done properly, saving them time and money.

We've got you covered with crop protection, fencing, and animal health products, boots and socks, right down to your mums washing powder.

Everything from seed to silo.

We also want to create a positive future for agriculture.

Which is why we continue to build strong relationships with many key suppliers and groups in the industry.

And why we remain at the forefront of new products, technologies and ways of thinking.

But we also remain commitment to our family values and being independent.

That's why we're proud members of Aglink and Family Business Australia.

So come on down and say g'day. We're a good mob!
