“This company isn’t just another greenhouse farm – it’s a community and it’s family.”

Dave B. has lived in Leamington, ON his entire life, which meant he had the opportunity to watch as hundreds of acres of greenhouse farms were built in the region over the last few decades. Although he grew up around them, Dave never thought he would pursue a full-time career at a greenhouse farm – that is, until he applied and was hired to join the Nature Fresh Farms team!

After high school, Dave decided to start in another popular industry in southwestern Ontario: “When I finished high school, I mostly stuck to the metal fabrication industry. It was only last year that I decided I wanted a career change and that I wanted to try a career in greenhouse farming. It’s unreal to think about what greenhouse farming used to be and what it has become.”

It was passion and opportunity that drove Dave to pursue a career at Nature Fresh Farms: “I’ve seen what greenhouses have evolved into and it is incredible. There are so many opportunities to grow and it doesn’t seem to be stopping anytime soon. In my new role, I’m enjoying getting to know my team as well as all the different products we sell, customers we work with, and Grower partners we have on board.”

With his free time, Dave enjoys staying fit and getting active whenever he can. Whether he is at the gym or playing sports like softball and golf, Dave is all about living an active lifestyle!

As a Commodity Manager in our Distribution Center, Dave ensures our customers get the freshest produce and that our inventory stays balanced. When produce is ready to send to our customers, Dave is always making sure it’s on the move at the right time! Dave is one of our #GrowToPeople!
