The McDonald story begins, with the land.
It’s a story of farming. Of seven thousand hectares of family farmland in the Waihopai Valley in New Zealand’s South Island. One of the most beautiful places in the world, renowned for its breathtaking landscapes: from rugged, merino-rearing hill country to lush, green rolling fields, to vine-clad river plains.
It’s a story of family. Of two hard working farming families intertwined by a passion for authenticity and craftsmanship. Three generations of one farming family created the McDonald brand: now the mantle has been passed to our fourth-generation farming family to continue its legacy.
