Just Shearing and Mallee Scrub

Just Shearing and Mallee Scrub are a family owned and operated businesses in the quiet country town of Eudunda in the Mid North of South Australia.

Being a rural area with sheep being one of the main produce grown and many shearers in the district, we decided to use Kevin's knowledge and expertise in the industry to offer our customers a wide range of sheep and shearing related items.

Once opening in the town it was apparent that to operate we needed to widen our range of products to cater for more than just the shearer/grazier. We began increasing our range to gifts, toys, clothing, footwear, accessories and more. We aim to look for items that are not always readily available in major stores. We also have local items on consignment ranging from beautifully country made pottery, handmade Alpaca scarves, handmade jewellery and other craft items.

Our shop allows for the understanding of the country culture and sheep related items, ask questions we are always happy to oblige! While the ladies are looking at Mallee Scrub, men can be at home viewing the Just Shearing range! But most welcome to check out Mallee Scrub as well!!
