The Peter Gorst Legacy

Gorst Rural was founded by Peter Gorst over 25 years ago. Peter grew the rural supplies business from humble beginnings into the multi- faceted operation it is today.  The family owned enterprise maintains its old fashioned values of good service & advice and to supply the right product when you need it – at the right price.  Peter’s strong customer focus combined with sharp business acumen- have seen his clients be some of the most successful in the region. Sadly, Peter passed in January 2013 but his legacy lives on.

Community

Strong businesses, strong communities, strong people.  Gorst Rural prides itself on being an integral part of local life- not only providing important services for primary producers, but employing locals and supporting like businesses.  Unlike much of our corporate competition,  our revenue goes back into the business and local community- not to faceless shareholders in capital cities.  In addition we sponsor many kindergartens, schools, sporting clubs, festivals, hospital and like charities- all part of being in a small community.
