Top 4 Under 40: Alex Chesney

Welcome to the second episode in our 2022 Top 4 Under 40 series. These three episodes will feature conversations with the winners of Fruit & Vegetable’s recent contest, which sought to recognize the industry’s young trailblazers.

Alex Chesney grew up on her family’s fruit and vegetable farm, Thames River Melons Ltd., and is now using her training as a registered dietician to make clear connections for consumers between nutrition and agriculture. In this episode, Fruit & Vegetable editor Alex Barnard and Chesney, who also acts as the on-farm market and deliveries manager, discuss how consumer interest helps drive change, the importance of promoting health – both physical and mental – for growers, and a pandemic innovation that brought the market to her customers' homes.
