“Nature Fresh Farms is a company that grows from within.”
Born and raised in Yellowknife, N.W.T, Justin S. has now called southern Ontario home for over 20 years with his wife and 10-year-old son. Justin grew up working at his dad’s electrical company and on the family farm – this is why he was drawn to working at a family-owned greenhouse operation like Nature Fresh Farms!
Working in agriculture is something that runs in Justin’s family: “Growing up, I spent most of my summers on the family farm helping out. My family has been in agriculture for close to 100 years! It has always been my dream to have a farm of my own.”
Like many of our team members, when Justin thinks of Nature Fresh Farms, he thinks of family: “I’m a very outgoing person so I have really enjoyed becoming a part of the Nature Fresh Farms family. It’s nice to work for a company that grows from within – this is one of the best jobs I’ve ever had.”
In his off hours, Justin is hoping to live a healthier lifestyle this year and get more involved with community sports. He is also an avid golfer in the summertime, so you will catch him on the green as soon as the warmer weather arrives in Essex County!
Justin’s role in the Maintenance department involves a lot of coordination – he is responsible for assigning Maintenance job tickets across the farm, coordinating deliveries to and from our operations, and performing shipping and receiving tasks. Justin is one of our #GrowToPeople!
