Nick Dudink has been farming since 1966, first in Holland, then in Ontario, until 1995, when he moved to Vancouver Island. He is well known in the Comox Valley for his berry farm, where he produced U-Pick and Ready-Picked berries for eleven years. In 2006, he moved to a larger farm in the South Wellington area of Nanaimo. Here he quickly transformed a rich soil hay field into 7 acres of strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, gooseberries, and red and black currants. Nick also grows a variety of seasonal vegetables and high quality, healthy nursery plants.
