Avtar & Ronnie Mann
Avtar & Ronnie Mann
BC Tree Fruit Grower

Originally from India, Ronnie and Avtar Mann came to Canada separately but discovered a shared desire to grow great food. Number one on their list is growing big, beautiful BC Ambrosia apples. We visited their farm in Vernon, BC just before harvest time in mid September. They consider themselves lucky to lease a farm that comes with the guidance of one of the Okanagan’s best orchardists and produces a crop of Ambrosia that they know people love. The proof is in the pudding – Mann’s Orchard was the recipient of The Golden Apple Award (presented by the B.C. Fruit Grower’s Association) in 2012. The Manns are a true success story but we’re far from the last chapter. The Manns have future ambitions that they’re nurturing in an interesting way. We’re happy to introduce you to these amazing BC Ambrosia apple growers. Please meet Ronnie and Avtar Mann.
