Mark Reusser farms in New Dundee near Waterloo, where he produces turkeys and grows crops. He has represented farmers from Waterloo Region, and Dufferin and Wellington counties on the board of the Ontario Federation of Agriculture since 1998 and since 2020 is also a director on the Canadian Federation of Agriculture board.
Mark holds a BSc. in Crop Science from the University of Guelph and is also a graduate of the Advanced Agricultural Leadership Program. He actively represents farmers through his involvement with the Waterloo Federation of Agriculture, where he currently serves as Vice President, as well as many local and regional committees. He is a Director with the Ontario Farmland Trust, Chair of the Ontario 4R Technical Standards Committee, and a member of both the Canadian Federal Species at Risk in Agriculture Core Planning Team and the Manure Collaborative Committee.
Mark is a firm believer in treading lightly on the land and leaving the soil, the water and the creatures that inhabit it in a better condition than when he began farming. In his spare time, he enjoys gardening and is a collector of heritage tomato and watermelon varieties.
