TreeCropper Issue 61 – March 2010

Front cover:
Fred Davey demonstrates ‘Lady Muck’ during a NZTCA Conference 2009 field trip to Cobtree Farm. Originally designed as a alpaca and horse poo collector, it also picks up olives, and in this case, hazels. See other members’ harvesting ideas on pages 32-37.
