Jeff Donald, Co-Owner

Jeff grew up in East Kingston and now he co-owns and lives on the farm with Kate. During the week, Jeff works for the Cooperative Alliance for Seacoast Transportation (COAST) improving access to transportation for seniors and individuals with disabilities. In his time away from the office, Jeff does a lot of behind-the-scenes work at the farm, including managing the young orchard, tractor work, infrastructure projects, and repairing and building stone walls. Jeff likes to play with their dogs Pippin and Henry, drink craft beer, watch movies, play softball, and work on the farm’s stone walls.
