Mcdonald Family


The face of a true family tree. How did a small orchard in Colts Neck become a 60,000-square-foot country food market attracting more than 2.5 million visitors annually? In 1974, the Barclay family hired a young produce stocker named Bill McDonald. Bill’s strong work ethic led him to many opportunities, from being promoted to the management team at age 20 to eventually saving enough money to buy the business. He also met a fellow employee named Linda, who would turn out to be his wife. Bill and Linda raised four children—Keri, Chris, Mike and Erin—who all grew up in the family business. On any given day, you will see the McDonalds working side by side with staff and greeting customers. At Delicious Orchards, we’re all about family. We’ve been family-owned from the beginning and consider you to be part of the family, too. Read our full history at and stop by soon!
