Our book, Honey and pollen flora of south-eastern Australia, has been awarded a gold medal in the category ‘Beekeeping Book which is wholly or mainly scientific classification’ at the 47th Apimondia Apicultural Congress in Istanbul Turkey. Authored by Dr Doug Somerville, this 680 page publication is based on over 30 years of research into the importance of understanding the biology of flora and its impact on the stocking rate and level of nutrition available to bee colonies.

We have a brand new book in our series on farm machinery! Motorbikes and their use on farms, by Jennifer Laffan with Steph Teterin and Peter Olsen.

Motorbikes can give you access to most areas on the farm. This book helps you get the most out of your bike. It covers safety, pre-start checks, driving in various terrains like slopes, water, mud and sand, as well as loading and transporting, servicing, and care for the environment.

Buy it from our online store for $20, and also check out our titles covering Tractors, Quad bikes, Side by sides and more.
