There’s a real shine on apples in a new part of the province as a result of the hard work and ingenuity of Steve Smith.  Beginning in 1995, he built a high-density, high production crop of apples in Bruce County that has sold out quickly and regularly for the last 10 years.  The bonus is that the sales and profits happen right on the farm.  As a result of his production practices, Smith’s farm is in demand as a tour destination and he gives lectures about “Starting an Agri-Business from Scratch.”
