Merryn MacDonald started Nidulari in 2013, after deciding to move home to St Croix to build a low-impact “tiny house” and live a simple life tending the land and feeding the community.
Nidulari is now a licensed food business, feeding the community! A one-woman operation, specializing in bakery goods made by hand from simple, wholesome ingredients and baked in a traditional wood-fired brick oven. Simplicity and wholesomeness are the basis for all Nidulari recipes, with the goal of feeding the community in a healthy, affordable fashion. The business principle behind Nidulari is not to make lots of money, but to build and service the community as a whole, whilst supporting a humble lifestyle.
Nidulari operates from a small homebuilt mobile sales van (inspired by the European gypsy vardos). All the culinary magic happens in a shipping container repurposed as a commercial kitchen, located in St Croix’s rainforest.
