Nicky
Nicky is director and co-founder of Pick's Organic Farm, Nicky started the business in 1999 with her cousin Tim (Tim sadly passed away in 2019). Having young children at the time of starting the business and wanting to give them the best start in life, as well as the love of the British countryside was the motivation to start Picks Organic. These values and Nicky’s passion for organic farming and animal welfare are still as strong today.

Paul on his stall
Paul
Paul came to join the Pick's team in 2004 as a delivery driver. Paul is now the market manager and sorts out all the logistics; he was instrumental in the farm starting doing markets in London. He really gets involved in all aspects of the business and he skills are pretty diverse - he is a keen foodie and was key to developing our award-winning sausage recipes. His contribution is far wider than that - whether he is repairing the market infrastructure or even the market vans, building poultry housing or mowing the hay even - no job is too big for Paul. Paul does markets in London at the weekends and regularly stands at Balham and Victoria Park.

Chip ready for action

Millie looking handsome

Natalia
Natalia came to Pick's to work in the butchery dept as the butcher's assistant. Her aptitude and enthusiasm were immediately clear and she is now our expert sausage and burger maker. She is picking up skills all the time and has quickly developed to a key reliable member of the team.

Rachel started working just weekends having come from a care sector background. Her care and empathy quickly enabled us to place her on the farm and she shows as much care and diligence to the animals as ever she did in her previous role. We are so pleased with her development she has now joined us as the farm apprentice. She works in all aspects of the farming side of the business but also works on the markets where she brings a range of expertise and experience.
