About

Nigel Walker grew up in Leicester, England, and studied agriculture in Essex. Nigel developed an interest in organic farming early on and in 1997, purchased his own land. One of the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market’s founding farms, Eatwell Farm grows a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, and sells many specialty products made from the lavender and other herbs they grow. The farm also sells pasture-raised eggs.

Besides selling at the farmers market, Eatwell Farm operates a sizable community supported agriculture (CSA) program. Nigel passed away in 2017, but his wife, Lorraine, and the Eatwell family carry on his legacy.
