Jamie Reaume
Executive Director, Holland Marsh Growers’ Association

Jamie Reaume is the Executive Director of the Holland Marsh Growers’ Association, which was created to help farmers in the region sell their products in the local marketplace.

Situated in the protected Greenbelt area that runs through Southern Ontario, the Holland Marsh has for decades been considered a crown jewel for agricultural production.

A long time provider of traditional crops such as carrots, onions and celery, the Association is now diversifying crop production to meet a wider demand across the Greater Golden Horseshoe Region.

Vegetables are not only grown within the Marsh, but also stored, processed and packaged, shortening the entire distribution chain and strengthening the local economy.
