Justin and Felicia Nicol strive to work with nature to grow healthy, delicious food.
Justin is a horticulturalist with a diploma from the Niagara Parks School of Horticulture behind him. He farms the land bought by his great grandfather, James Nicol, in 1900. Growing up on this farm drove him towards a career working with plants. He is transitioning from his landscaping and arboriculture business towards full time farming. When he has spare time, he works with his draft horse Ruby. His goal is to someday integrate her into farming the land.
Felicia has always loved nature and being outdoors. She attended the University of Guelph to study a BSc in Environmental Sciences, followed by a Master's Integrative Biology. She looks at agriculture as an ecosystem, applying ecological principles to maximize yield, while minimizing impact.
