As one of the pioneers of organic farming in Georgia, Nicolas Donck grows a diverse selection of certified organic vegetables and herbs year-round on his family’s land east of Atlanta. When Nicolas was 16, he left his home in Belgium and moved to Georgia to join his mother on her 175-acre farm. Since then, Nicolas started Atlanta’s first organic farmer’s market in 1995, and has continued to add considerable acreage into organic production on his farm. Nicolas says the best thing about farming is having the opportunity to live close to the earth with his family.Note: Our Farm to Market slide shows currently feature farmers and producers from our South and MidAtlantic Regions. We hope to expand to others in the future.
