Don Macrae

Head Market Gardener
Don Macrae

Following eight years working as a chef in some of the world's top restaurants, inspired by the produce he had been working with and the necessity of forging a sustainable, food-secure future, Don decided to venture into food production. Now into his 4th year of running a market garden, Don's green fingers are yielding better results each year! You'll often find Don sniffing compost, burrowing in the cover crops or protecting (cuddling) his seedlings from the inevitable late frost.

One of the great joys each week is opening up my Free Co. box and discovering what they have sent me. I can then plan my meals around the veg and challenge myself with new recipes and ideas. I'm also supporting a truly sustainable business.
