Sneak Preview – Part 3 – NIKIAN Farm


Niki and Ian proudly boast their 90% food self-sufficiency.  Their gardens occupy a good deal of their time and their evolving natural garden, says Niki, is becoming “a model for me as an aging gardener”. In 2002, they began to convert a horse operation into a vast array of vegetables, orchards, perennials and a rice paddy. Rare plants, innovation, solar power and education are important parts of what they do.

Sustainability is at the core of everything they do.


These windows reminded me of another property on the Tour – The Academy!
