Welcome to the second episode in our Top 4 Under 40 series. These four episodes will feature conversations with the winners of Fruit & Vegetable’s recent contest, which sought to recognize the industry’s young trailblazers.
Hayden Dooney may have studied grape and wine production, but apples are where he's making his mark. In our second episode, Fruit & Vegetable associate editor Alex Barnard chats with Dooney, general manager of the Norfolk Fruit Growers Association and co-owner of Suncrest Orchards. He discusses his journey to becoming part of the Canadian fruit and vegetable industry, the impacts of COVID-19, and the importance of temporary foreign workers.
