Meet Your BC Ambrosia Apple Growers – Greg Sanderson

We love to introduce you to the people who grow your Ambrosia apples. Last fall, just before harvest time, we took a trip to the Similkameen Valley to meet Greg Sanderson. While we chatted he told us how farming landed him in an RCMP cruiser, helped him develop a great partnership with his wife and raise a close-knit family. Plus, he shares what makes him the most proud to be an Ambrosia apple grower. He’s quite a character! Get to know Greg here.
