“Although I’ve only been at Nature Fresh for a few months, it feels like I’m home and I’ve been here forever. Nature Fresh Farms to me means family”
Born in Kingsville, Ontario Steve P. is proud of his farm-raised roots, attributing his work ethic and competitive spirit his upbringing laboring on his family farm.
Steve’s sharp mind for numbers and passion for growing led him to a career in agriculture in the community he was raised in: “I was always strong in math growing up, and in high school when I took my first accounting class, I ended up excelling in it! From there I took an accounting co-op placement at a car dealership in town and knew immediately I had found my calling. All my experience led me to Nature Fresh where I started in December 2020.”
Steve brings an even-keeled methodical nature to our finance department which helps him to excel in his position: “I’m very analytical which is critical in my role. I am also naturally competitive which pushes me to reach new heights in my career. To balance out my competitive nature, I’m even mannered and mindful, as well, which allows me to stay calm even in chaotic circumstances.”
In his leisure time, Steve enjoys being with his wife and three kids. To scratch his competitive itch, Steve can be found on the curling rink or racing half-marathons!
