Robin Gray is a chef / grower on the Isle of Arran.
In the early days working as a chef on the Isle of Arran after working in the catering trade in France, Robin realised it was very difficult to get the quality and variety of salad leaves and herbs in Scotland. He decided to start growing the produce and rearing the chickens, guinea fowl , ducks and pigs that he wanted to use in the kitchen.
After buying the ground at Sandbraes, Kings Cross in whiting bay in 2005 he expanded with a large poly tunnel that allowed more tender crops to be grown and lengthened the growing season. He started running food stalls at various festivals up and down the country.
Robin now supplies a fantastic array of vegetables & herbs grown on organic principles to some local Arran shops and restaurants as well as to some of Scotland’s top chefs on the mainland.
Robin is now running pop up restaurants, celebration events, weddings, parties and dine in dinner parties using his own home grown or locally sourced seasonal produce to create fantastic fresh food. At locations mostly based on the Isle of Arran.
