Orangeline “Signs Up” to Offer the Community Free Produce
- by ANUK Staff
OCT. 3, 2014 (LEAMINGTON, ON) - After many years of operating greenhouse operations at the corner of Highway 77 and County Road 14, Orangeline has put up its first ever company sign on the property. “Think of it as a sign that we’re launching into the next level of our growth and development,” jokes Duffy Kniaziew, President of Orangeline Farms and one of two brothers who own and manage the business.
“It never seemed like that much of a priority,” says his brother Jordan, Vice-President, “since we deal primarily with produce buyers from the major chains. From that standpoint, having a strong local presence was never a major priority.”
But, he adds, the family is proud of their Leamington heritage and the company’s role in the community. “I guess it was time to ‘sign up’, so to speak, for a more visible presence.” Motorists along Highway 77 will hardly miss the large orange sign that now sits on the corner of the property.
COMMUNITY OFFERED FREE SAMPLES OF ZING! PRODUCE
To celebrate the new sign, Orangeline invites the community to experience its premium Zing! brand sweet bell peppers and other specialty produce. The company’s roadside stand, just west of the new sign, will be open on Saturday Oct. 11 at 8:00AM. While quantities last, visitors will be welcome to take home free sample bags.
“It’s our way of giving thanks to the community for all the support we’ve received over the years,” adds Duffy. “With the amazing bounty we see all around us, and with Thanksgiving right around the corner, it’s a great time to be giving back to our local friends and neighbours.”
