- Indoor and outdoor markets
Lloyd Nichols and his wife, Doreen, started Nichols Farm and Orchard as a hobby on 10 acres in 1977. The couple was able to turn the hobby into a business as the family grew. Today the Nichols’ sons, Nick (pictured), Todd and Chad, all make their livelihoods from the farm where they grew up. The family specializes in variety: the farm grows more than 1000 cultivars of fruits and vegetables on 250 acres. Their dozens of varieties of potatoes, tomatoes, apples and other produce have brightened Green City Market since its founding.
