Nicci Place grew up in Kent but has worked and studied in Kent, Essex, Suffolk, London and Hampshire. As well as undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in Archaeology and Public Archaeology she has travelled, worked, volunteered and studied in Germany, South Dakota, South Africa and Eswatini. Her voluntary work includes working with local people in Eswatini to help build a local artisan community. She also studied permaculture and building sustainable communities. Her study focused extensively upon local communities.

 

Nicci returned to Kent seventeen years ago and lives in Whitstable with her two girls. Nicci's belief in a sustainable way of growing, eating and living, together with her love of good quality food led her to create The Whitstable Hamper Company in 2011. She buys locally and uses small suppliers who use naturally grown produce and/or make by hand using traditional methods. This produces incredible textures and flavours helped by the wonderful Kent climate. At the Whitstable Hamper Company you will find handpicked selections to suit a wide range of tastes, budgets and occasions. And if you need something special you can just ask.
