Gareth "Donkey" Gault

Founder & Director

Gareth Gault, better known as ‘Donkey’ to all his fans, is the director and owner of GRASSMEN. The brand GRASSMEN was established in 2010 and has grown exponentially year on year with thanks to our loyal fan base. 

GRASSMEN have a huge online presence but the favourite side of the business for Donkey is attending the shows and meeting his fans.  If you have attended any of the shows where GRASSMEN have had a stand, you will have seen the interactive nature of the distinctive GRASSMEN stand.  This is a reflection of Donkey as a person.  He is a very friendly, enthusiastic and caring person who enjoys having a chat and spending time with his fans, regardless of their age or what their favourite tractor is! 

Donkey has always loved farming, and it is from this love that GRASSMEN evolved.  Although Donkey did not grow up on a farm himself, he was lucky enough to have uncles and cousins who had farms and as a child they allowed him to get involved. As he grew up, he loved working long evenings and weekends milking cows on his family's farms.  

Going onto University he studied a degree in Agricultural Economics and Management.  From here he progressed to becoming a salesman selling animal feed. Another interest which developed on those family farms was animal nutrition. He didn’t just believe in selling the product, but selling the right product to the right person.   

Donkey was able to fulfil another dream when he passed his HGV test and became a part-time driver for Blair International and this love of lorries never left.  As you all know the pride and joy of the GRASSMEN fleet is EVA-ROSE!  

Charity has always been close to Donkey's heart and from the outset, supporting various charities has been a large part of GRASSMEN.  Donkey will do his utmost best to help charities whether that is fundraising, charity events or training days. Especially children’s charities as this means a lot to Donkey personally.  

Finally, Donkey is more like a friend than a boss to all our staff and makes everyone feel like they are part of the team. #TEAMGRASSMEN 

GRASSMEN started from Donkey's love of farming and he pursued it into a career which now employees around 20 people. Donkey would encourage any young person to follow their dreams and career, as anything is possible if you put your mind to it!

Senior Management Team/Executive Assistant to Director

I joined the team in November 2017 to help with the Christmas orders and print raffle tickets for the TW35. From then, I have progressed to becoming part of the Senior Management Team as well as Gareth’s Executive Assistant. My role means I am Gareth’s right-hand woman by answering his calls, organising meetings and dealing with the financesBasically, if you see Gareth I will most likely not be too far away. Around GRASSMEN HQ, I am also referred to as Mrs Doyle, as you are sure to get a cup of tea or coffee if you call in. Being a part of GRASSMEN has been a real learning curve for me and I love all the new challenges. Since being with GRASSMEN, I have done a lot of travelling and I love how every day is so different 

Before I started with GRASSMEN I worked in Galgorm Manor as the Head Pastry Chef, so moving to GRASSMEN was definitely a different career path. I also travelled and lived in Australia for over a year, which was the best experience of my life and I would highly recommend it to anyone.

I joined the GRASSMEN team in June 2017. My role with in the Senior Management Team, is a demanding but very enjoyable and rewarding job. I am responsible for overlooking and managing the operations within the business including events, staff, product production, dispatch and our flagship store to name but a few!

Every day is different, I get to learn each and every day and come across challenges and tasks that help me better my own personal skill set. I have never been as well-travelled since I joined the team, which is a major bonus! The most rewarding part for me is that I get to manage a team who help make the end goal so rewarding.

Before my career with Moover Ltd I left school with GCSEs and A Levels which I achieved at Dunclug College with the vison of a career within the events industry. So, I set off to experience University life where I studied Event Management whilst working in retail and various events. I then graduated with a 2:1 BCs Hons in event management from the Ulster of University which led to my Career with GRASSMEN.

 

My interests outside of work include days away and spending time with my loved ones, including my car! My time so far working for GRASSMEN has been challenging, rewarding and overall a lot of fun - the long hours and team spirt makes it very rewarding.

I am super proud to be a part of #TEAMGRASSMEN.

I joined GRASSMEN in May 2017 to help the team get ready for Balmoral Show and since then I have become the full-time operations Supervisor looking after the warehouse, dispatch and embroidery procedures. Within this role I ensure the embroidery and dispatch teams know what they are doing to process orders in a timely manner for all our customers and events. We run our embroidery machines seven days a week, framing up the garments and ensuring they are of the best quality possible. I also overlook and input my opinions on new products and releases. Everything that goes to the shop, shows and online orders is checked by me and our QC teams to ensure quality and excellence.


I came out of school with my exams and I then went on to work with horses, at my family’s stables on my home farm. My career with GRASSMEN has been the best move for me as I am still learning new skills every day. I enjoy working here because we are like a family and can support each other whilst still having fun. My favourite part of GRASSMEN would be getting to go to the shows as the atmosphere is always buzzing. We get to meet the fans and it is great to see that our hard work and dedication is all worth it when we see you there.


Outside of work I like to work on my home stables with my horses and go on holidays. I enjoy going for food with family and friends.


From working at GRASSMEN I have gained new skills such as team management and organisation. I am constantly learning and developing my skills and I look forward to seeing what the future holds for us here at GRASSMEN. We are our own little family and I wouldn’t change it!

I joined GRASSMEN in October 2020, just in time for the Christmas madness. I'm involved in the production of your clothes and merchandise with our famous GRASSMEN logo. I also work in our flagship store where I love to meet and help fans get exactly what they are looking for. My next challenge within the team is to learn the dispatch side of the business. Outside of work I enjoy time with my family and evenings out with friends. I also enjoy country and beach walk with my dog. I grew up within a farming family background and always had an interest in all aspects.

Being a member of such a fun-filled team and a wide variety of tasks within the working week makes work life so enjoyable!

I started GRASSMEN in November 2020 to lend a hand within dispatch and embroidery as a general operative on a part-time basis and love getting orders packed up and sent off to make the customers happy. A few years on I have now joined the team during my placement year at university as an Operations Assistant, working alongside the team on events and all the background operations. Outside of GRASSMEN, I am a member of Randalstown YFC, with young farmers I love getting out and about. I currently study Leisure and Events Management at Ulster University. And in my spare time, I love getting to spend time on my dad’s farm.

Team GRASSMEN has allowed me to excel in my skill set and this I am thankful for!

I have been a part of the GRASSMEN team from word go and I have loved watching the brand grow and develop. My main aspect in the team is ensuring top quality products are coming through the production line, along with encouraging and supporting the company. Back when it all started, you would have caught me at all the shows and events, and completing the online orders from my front room, how times have changed!

In my spare time there is nothing more I love than grabbing a coffee and a catch up with friends.

I first joined the GRASSMEN team back in 2015 for the filming of the DVD Donkey Contracts. Since then, I have been part of the team both on and off the screen from dealing with online orders and dispatch to running errands in the trucks or tractors or help with setting up at events or shows. I am always on hand to help out in my spare time alongside my other work driving lorries and working to local contractors. I love getting to shows and events with the team, meeting all our customers and getting to know fans that return year after year.

Currently I work to a local contractor which takes care of my main passion in life, tractors. I still drive for JJP Haulage when I can and getting out in the lorry, a Scania R560, is one of my favourite things to do!

Working local means I’m close to home and I have more time for my daughter Rheá who is just as mad about machinery and animals as her mum and dad. My partner Paul runs his own contracting business and having just bought his own McHale Fusion, is going from strength to strength.

Being a part of GRASSMEN has given me so many opportunities and I’m looking forward to seeing what the future holds.

In June 2021 I graduated with a 2:1 in Cinematic Arts from Ulster University. A few months later I joined the GRASSMEN team as a video editor. My role within the team involves editing video content and working with the rest of the production team to create and publish content.  

I have studied film and media for the past 10 years, so it is quite clearly one of my life passions. Although editing is currently my main job, I enjoy many aspects of filmmaking from pre- to post-production. Before joining GRASSSMEN I worked in hospitality in which I gained a plethora of invaluable skills.  

When I’m not working, I enjoy being creative, reading, scrolling through Instagram and going on adventures. I love cats and have a little black rescue called Edgar who gets spoilt rotten. I grew up on a sheep farm and although I choose a career in filmmaking, it is clear that agriculture will continue to be a big part of my life.

In the summer of 2021, I gained very valuable experience, and I am grateful to be part of the team at GRASSMEN which I hope to develop further throughout 2022 by completing my placement year with the content creation team.

I joined the GRASSMEN team back in August 2018 as an embroiderer whilst studying at Greenmount (CAFRE) and juggling a little bit of relief milking here and there. I then headed overseas to New Zealand, undertaking dairy farming and what an experience it was! I am delighted to be back with the GRASSMEN team where I am learning new roles within the company as a general operative, so much has changed within the past couple of years. As of early 2022, I have joined the Content Creation team as Social Media & Content Assistant, and to date, I have been able to learn new skills both behind the screen and out on the road with the film crew!

Onwards and upwards is the saying and it’s great to see this business doing just that, as well as being part of the close-knit ‘family’ team here at GRASSMEN. Outside of work I am an active member of Moycraig Young Farmer’s Club, taking part in most competitions and events. I enjoy catching up with friends and family should it be at a coffee shop or social event.

Throughout working with GRASSMEN I have gained valuable skills and I can’t wait to see what opportunities will arise in the future with ‘TEAM GRASSMEN’.

I joined Team GRASSMEN on the 21st of October 2021 to help with emails and phone calls over the mad rush of Christmas 21.

My job description is pretty self-explanatory, as “Customer Support and Admin” I spend most of my day dealing with customer enquiries and requests through emails and phone calls.

I thoroughly enjoy keeping our loyal fans and customers happy and I try my best to help in any way I can. I also help by packing orders and anything else that needs done ... Even the tea round.

As a mum of two farming mad little boys and a farmer’s daughter, I spend most of my free time on ‘Grandas Farm’ graping silage, calving cows and scraping the cubicles.

As I only joined the Team a few months ago I cannot wait to see what my future with GRASSMEN brings.

I am currently in my final year at Ulster University, Belfast studying textiles and fashion in which I specialize in embroidery.

For me, working with a brilliant team who know how to have a laugh, having a variety of tasks throughout the week and hearing positive feedback from our customers makes coming to work enjoyable.

Outside of work, I am trained in makeup and beauty and still do the odd set of nails and eyebrows in my spare time. I also enjoy spending my free time with my family and friends, as well as the dogs of course.

Over the recent months I have trained and learned the accounts within the team and I now work part-time in this position. It has been great to be able to add to my skill set by being part of the team at GRASSMEN. I look forward to continuing this and maybe getting out to a few events over the summer months.

I joined Team GRASSMEN just ahead of the 2021 Christmas rush. Although I occasionally work in the Flagship Store, most of my time is spent in the embroidery room. Having worked with horses up until last year embroidery was completely new to me. I love the fast-paced work environment and everyone has made me feel so welcome and took me under their wing to learn the ropes. 

When I’m not busy embroidering I love to spend time cycling, paddleboarding and horse riding with my daughter Lexa. I am also starting a degree in Biomedical Science and Radiography in September. 

I’ve really enjoyed my time with GRASSMEN so far and I’m looking forward to learning more new skills in the future.

I joined the GRASSMEN content creation team in January 2024 as a presenter. This role includes filming days capturing content, editing and obviously asking people about their tractor! Saying this, I could be at absolutely anything around the yard from machinery maintenance to photoshoots. 

Originally, I wanted to be a vet but I've always had an interest in machinery and studied Land Based Technology after leaving school. I then served my time as an agricultural mechanic. Since then, I have worked in Australia driving machinery, drove to various contractors, as well as making the occasional video in between. 

My hobbies include the gym, hurling and football. I also spend a lot of my time on the family farm at home, where we keep sheep and beef cattle.
