As part of its continuing growth strategy, Nature Fresh Farms has cut the ribbon with new partners in its original phase 1 and 2 greenhouses in Leamington, Ontario. The facility’s new name will be Chosen Farms Ltd., owned by Neil Enns, Ben Friesen, Abram Fehr and Peter Klassen.
“I’m very excited to help Chosen Fresh Farms purchase my first 36-acre farm and congratulate them on becoming a part of the Nature Fresh Farms team of growers,” said Peter Quiring. “As our market share continues to grow, Nature Fresh Farms needs an ongoing new supply of innovative, passionate growers to keep us ahead of the competition.”
“The sale of our original 36 acres adds a new long-term grower to our family of existing growers and allows us to expedite our upcoming plans for expansion,” shared John Ketler. “It also supports several local families to get into the greenhouse farming business which encourages others to take an interest in the industry.”
This latest transaction by Nature Fresh Farms assists in expediting expansion plans beyond the current construction of Phase 8. Its completion is planned for spring 2020 to accommodate more year-round organic production.
