A man from the Niagara Region is taking over the Ontario Fruit and Vegetable Growers' Association.

Bill George was named their new Chair earlier this week. 

He grows 160 acres of wine grapes with his wife on a farm that has been in his family for generations, dating back to 1796.

George became a board member of the Grape Growers of Ontario back in 1995, before he became their chairman for 9 years.
