The Spitters’ family has long farming heritage. Opa Spitters immigrated to Canada from Holland in 1954. Coming from a farming family, he knew that his future was in agriculture. He worked ten years as a labourer until he could make a down payment for a small dairy farm on Nicomen Island. This is where Corry and his four brothers were raised. Soon after arriving on the dairy farm, Corry felt right at home and knew he also wanted to continue the family tradition.
In 1989 Corry purchased his family farm. While he’d had a passion for dairy farming growing up, he had spent fifteen years selling poultry equipment, followed by 13 years in the feed industry 11 years as a partner in Excel Feeds of Abbotsford and felt it was a good fit for him.
Having grown up on the family poultry farm, his sons Jordan and Jeffrey continue the farming tradition joining their father on Oranya Farms.
Correctly spelled “Oranje” (orange in dutch) the name was misspelled when Opa registered the company in Canada. Although the spelling has changed over the years, the farming history traces back to the 18th century.
