Nicolas Donck was born in Belgium and moved here to this land in Georgia when he was 16. He just recently became a dual citizen of Belgium and the USA. He graduated from UGA with a degree in international business but quickly realized that his heart belonged to farming. Crystal Organic Farm was started (initially as a garden) by his mother, Helen Dumba, who lives on the 175 acres where the farm resides. Helen is also responsible for the farm’s flowers.
