Top 4 Under 40: Philip Keddy
By Alex Barnard
Welcome to the third episode in our Top 4 Under 40 series. These four episodes will feature conversations with the winners of Fruit & Vegetable’s recent contest, which sought to recognize the industry’s young trailblazers.
In this episode, Fruit & Vegetable associate editor Alex Barnard chats with Philip Keddy, production manager of C.O. Keddy Nursery Inc. Keddy and his family grow strawberry nursery plants and sweet potatoes in Nova Scotia’s Annapolis Valley. He discusses the importance of finding what fits for your operation even if it’s unconventional, the power of building a rapport with your customers, and finding motivation in doing what others say can’t be done.
