“I view myself as an extremely hard worker – I always give 100% of my effort.”

Johnny N. didn’t choose the greenhouse industry – it chose him. He started at NatureFresh™ Farms in 2011 as a Greenhouse Supervisor, and throughout his time with us, Johnny has grown within the company to take on many different positions at the farm and office levels. Now, Johnny is the Assistant Procurement Manager for our Procurement team in Leamington, ON.

At the end of 2017, Johnny made a big role-switch within our company: “I was offered an opportunity to advance within the company and take on a completely different role as part of the Procurement department. I decided to give it a try, and I have come to really enjoy the challenge and getting to interact with different people every day from all over the world.”

Working at NatureFresh™ Farms has had an extremely positive impact on Johnny’s life: “We have a unique culture here. It’s a team environment where everyone, no matter what level they work at, cares about each other’s success and the success of our company.”

To take time for himself, Johnny enjoys fishing, golfing, playing softball, hanging out with family and friends, and training his German Shepherd, Jax. Faith is also a very big part of Johnny’s life – becoming a Christian was one of his defining moments.

It is Johnny’s responsibility to develop and maintain strong relationships with our partner growers, ensure our retail partners’ orders are filled with high-quality product, and sustain product inventory. Johnny and the Procurement team work hard every day to bring the highest quality and freshest products to our customers. Johnny is one of our #GrowToPeople!
