Source Water Protection

Source Protection Committee Member: Dave Ritchie

Dave has lived in Simcoe County all his life, where he was a dairy farmer for more than 30 years. During this time, he contributed strongly for many years to the important county dairy producer committee system, a grassroots approach which forms the foundation of the Dairy Farmers of Ontario.

Although retired from dairy production, Dave continues to be a cash crop and maple syrup producer. His wide range of experience has taught him the value of dialogue... of being willing to listen and take into account other perspectives in the development of policy.

Dave is a Councilor in Tay Township Ward 2, a Director on the Severn Sound Association, and an Agricultural Representative on the South Georgian Bay Lake Simcoe Source Water Protection Committee. Additionally he sits on the Board of Trustees in Martyrs’ Shrine in Midland and is a past Chair of the Simcoe County Milk Committee.
