About D & M Rural - Your Local CRT Bloke in Bordertown
After having worked together for numerous years in the rural agribusiness industry, Mark Dolling and Glen Mead had decided that they would take an opportunity to work for themselves if it ever arose. That opportunity came in late 2007 and hence, D & M Rural was born. They secured the perfect premises for the new store at 10 Dukes Highway, Bordertown (previously a transport depot) and the store opened in March of 2008. Having celebrated their 10th anniversary in 2018, Mark has now left D & M Rural to pursue other interests.
