Nick grew up idolizing his dairy farmer grandparents and dreamed of working their farm. The development of his family’s land changed his trajectory, however, and Nick pursued a career in environmental science. After working as an ecologist for a decade, he revived his childhood dreams and began working on farms in Vermont and Massachusetts. Nick has experience in food safety, vegetable production, dairy, hemp, and maple. He currently co-owns a small maple sugaring operation in the Northeast Kingdom. Nick is committed to honoring our region’s agricultural legacy while also promoting innovative, equitable, and sustainable farming practices.
