"Wine improves with age. The older I get, the better I like it."
Great wine deserves the company of great food. After spending the better part of the last two decades building an impressive wine cellar, Mark was always on the lookout for great food to go with all his great wine. Look no further than La Ferme Black River. An entrepreneurial spirit and an itch to try something new meant that La Ferme quickly became a new family endeavour. The learning curve has been steep but the rewards have been well worth it.
Mark continues to practice law on a part-time basis. When he is not in the middle of negotiating legal contracts Mark can be found trying his hand at new tasks like managing La Ferme’s building operations, packing up orders for customers, managing a fleet of delivery vehicles and even sometimes driving throughout Ontario to deliver orders. If you happen to catch him on the road, make sure to ask him about his “Diesel” story!
One of Mark’s secret hobbies is to shop for and change light bulbs. And boy is he lucky at La Ferme… he gets to change all the bulbs he can reach, even the ones in the freezer! Mark is an avid reader and historian who knows more about the 1800’s than the average Jeopardy contestant. His favourite pastime is enjoying a great home cooked meal with La Ferme products along with a bottle (or three) of his favourite wines.
