List of best rural brands / some of the brands I value

What are the brands that you trust and value? Here's a quick brain dump of some brands (loosely interpreted) that jump to mind for me;

Stihl – everyone round here swears they produce the best chainsaws

Husqvarna – also pretty good chainsaws

Skellerup – the best gumboots available. They last and last.

Stanley – for quality tools

RD1 – these guys have all the gear, and are always happy to provide a bit of free advice

Sir Edmund Hillary – perhaps not a brand, but New Zealand’s greatest ever

Gallagher – really good electric fencing units

Swandri – I got my first Swandri when I was about 12. NZ outdoor clothing is outstanding. Other top kiwi brands include Swazi, Bivouac, Kathmandu and Icebreaker

Sanitarium – good healthy food that tastes great.

Country Calendar – A great kiwi TV program for all the family

Mitre 10 – a man can never have too many tools

Dexters – small, friendly, great tasting cattle breed. We have three.

Cadbury – okay they make chocolate, but plenty of chocolate is consumed on the block. Almost overtaken by Whittakers this year for supremacy in the NZ chocolate market.

More best and most valued brands to come in a later list….
