Podcast Interview With Simon Worthington, Editor Of Turf & Grain Magazine


Meet Simon Worthington


Meet Simon Worthington, the EY accountant with the coolest hobby ever: founding, running and editing the beautiful Turf & Grain magazine.

Turf & Grain is a super-high-quality, slow-cooked magazine that features in-depth interviews with noteworthy individuals across the whole island of Ireland.

Each issue is based around a theme. Last time it was ‘Makers’ and documented the stories of local craftsmen and women who are creating incredible things.

The magazine is a work of art and often feels more like a published book rather than a magazine… That’s all down to Simon’s absolute obsession with quality, and desire to create something beautiful to showcase the beauty of this part of the world, and the people in it.
