NICK VOULGARIS, OWNER
Nick Voulgaris III is an entrepreneur, farmer, designer and published author. He is passionate about food, environmental conservation, restoration and historic preservation. He was able to combine these interests with the purchase and revitalization of Kerber’s Farm. The farm, which dates back to 1941, was slated for development into condominiums prior to Nick saving it.
Nick has restored the market and vegetable farm, raises organic chickens, and has numerous bee hives for local raw honey. In three short years he and his team have grown Kerber’s into a national brand with it's products sold in a network of stores around the country including Williams Sonoma and all Neiman-Marcus stores. Future plans for the farm include building a farming educational school and interactive classroom in one of the property’s historic barns.
Nick has written several books including HINCKLEY YACHTS: AN AMERICAN ICON and THE SEASIDE HOUSE, published by Rizzoli International. He is currently writing two new books: one on the legendary boat builder Chris-Craft, and the other on the fabled New York Athletic Club.
Nick lives in Manhattan with his English Labrador Charlie, and in the summer aboard his classic Alden sailboat in Shelter Island, NY.
