In 2004, Angus MckIntosh - aka The Barefoot Farmer or Farmer Angus - traded a career as a stockbroker in London for a new life as a grass farmer, a biodynamic student, carbon sequestrator and a committed pioneer of healthy farming practices on Spier farm.
He is an outspoken proponent of pasture-reared beef and ethical food production. Farmer Angus lives with his partner Mariota Enthoven and their children in their home on the farm, where he constantly explores new ways of working the land according to methods and principles of Austrian anthroposophist Rudolph Steiner.
What’s in his glass? His own Ezibusisweni 2008 Straw Wine.
