Farming and food sector stepping up to pandemic challenge By Peter Quiring
The global pandemic has created challenging times for people around the globe. I’m the founder and president of Nature Fresh Farms in Leamington, and while many people and businesses are affected by shutdowns and layoffs, we’ve been working hard to keep up with the demands of our customers.
We’re the largest independent greenhouse produce grower in Canada, with over 200 acres of conventional and organic bell peppers, tomatoes and cucumbers in production. We also work with many other farmers who grow for us, and our produce ends up on the shelves of major retail chains across Canada and in the United States.
