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.

Mark lives in Bordertown with his beautiful family (a wife and 3 kids) and spends his down time doing what any great Dad and hubby does – supporting and ferrying around his family to their various interests (family events, cricket, footy, tennis, netball).
Glen also lives in Bordertown with his family (wife and 2 daughters) and spends his time away from work at home with his family or on anything with a motor – racing go-carts, trail riding on his motorbike or doing jobs on his tractor & mower.
Outside of work Nat is a member of the Rotary Club, a member of the Bordertown A’Capella Singers, an on-air presenter and football broadcast "techie" for local community radio station 5tcb, and a member of the Bordertown Lutheran Church where she is in the band and co-ordinates the weekly powerpoint presentations.
Time away from D & M Rural for Bazz means time for Dirt carts, water skiing, basketball and hockey. Barry likes spending time with friends, he loves helping out when one of them is in need and he’s an invaluable member to our local community as he is currently an active member of the Bordertown CFS.
Outside of D & M Rural Josh is a busy man. He spends his time back on the farm seeding, mowing, baling and is also involved with Limek, a Limousin cattle stud which involves working with and breaking in the cattle, showing the cattle at various events and selling the Limousin bulls. When he gets a break from all of that, he enjoys the odd spot of fishing.
Maddy was brought up in Hobart, Tasmania but spent a lot of her childhood on the Tasman Peninsular visiting her grandparents where she grew to love the country life along with her motorbike and love of animals. Having been accepted in to a jillaroo course back in 2016 this gave her the opportunity to learn the skills required to work on a farm and where her love of agriculture began. Maddy loves spending time with her kelpie Ellie and enjoys a range of outdoor activites along with helping out on farms when she can.
In her spare time Jess likes to ride her horses and play netball.
