Fuller Brothers Farm Inc.

How long has your family been in the apple business?

I’m the 4th generation to farm here in Avonport. The farm began as a mixed farm and transitioned into apples about 60 years ago. My father (Foster) and two uncles (Pierson & Royce) began an apple u-pick in the mid-1970s which I continued to run until 2010. We began shipping apples to SG in 1990.

How long have you been in the apple business?

I’ve been home since 1988 and purchased the farm from my father and uncles in 1995. In addition to apples, I also ran a strawberry u-pick (until 2000) and had a moderate size beef herd (until 2004).  My wife, Kathy, and I have three children, Ryan, Darcy and Jesse who have all graduated from university and are pursuing their own careers. Kathy has retired after 32 years of teaching.
