ACRES AUSTRALIA, established in May 1991 by the Bock family is now in its 29th year of publishing and is Australia’s only independent, family-owned, National newspaper of sustainable Agriculture.

Acres Australia is regarded as honest, intelligent and confronting, taking its readers to the new frontiers of commercial farming in Australia.

Over the past 29 years there has been a major shift toward clean and green sustainable agriculture. Acres Australia caters to that market and is well established in the market place as the publication for non-chemical farmers, supporting landcare, agriforestry and ecology issues.

Acres Australia will keep readers informed and up-to-date with organic and biodynamic industry news & marketing and sustainable farming issues, on-farm stories, farmers’ markets, soil science, land care, health, ecology, profiles and international news.

Acres Australia is available in digital format @ Pressreader.


Acres Australia has a broad based readership from farmers to city business people, university academics, CSIRO scientists, departments of agriculture, TAFEs, universities, secondary schools and municipal libraries.

Acres Australia is published in digital format by Independent Rural Publishers – a solid, family-driven, publishing company of 39 years, owned by the Bock family of Noosaville, Queensland, Australia, servicing the agricultural needs of National, State and rapidly growing global markets.
