Cornelius N.


“NatureFresh™ is a company full of opportunities.”

Working in the greenhouse industry for 20 years, Cornelius N. has learned a lot about greenhouse growing and what it takes to run a successful operation. When the opportunity presented itself in 2015, Cornelius made the move to Ohio to become the Greenhouse Operations Manager at NatureFresh™ Farms in Delta – and he hasn’t looked back since.

Cornelius has done almost every job a greenhouse farm has to offer: “I have had a lot of different roles within the industry – I’ve been a General Laborer, Greenhouse Supervisor, Assistant Grower, Labor Manager, and now Greenhouse Operations Manager. Working in agriculture is my passion.”

Over almost four years, Cornelius has seen a lot of change take place at our greenhouse in Ohio: “From where we started to now, we have come a long way. It was a challenging start at times because we were the first commercial-sized greenhouse to start up in Fulton County, but almost four years later, we are now sitting in a great spot.”

This year, Cornelius knows he will continue to set high expectations for himself and the operation he manages: “I always want to do the best I can, both professionally and personally. My expectations are high, but I know that if I take things as they come and respond in a smart way, I’ll find success.”

As the Greenhouse Operations Manager in Ohio, Cornelius has a lot of responsibility on his plate – and by effectively managing the greenhouse, he can ensure that, every season, there are millions of fresh Ohio-grown Tomatoes for your family to enjoy! Cornelius is one of the #GrowToPeople.
