Born in Wiarton, Ontario, Adam Lesperance has lived, worked, and farmed in Bruce County his entire life. Adam grew up on his family’s maple/dairy/beef farm in Park Head, and attended Hepworth Central Public School, where son Kolby now attends.
After various management jobs with the Ministry of Natural Resources, Ontario Parks, and private tree care services in the area, Adam started Woody’s Arborist and Yard Services in 2007. Starting the company with only himself, a truck, and a chainsaw, Adam grew Woody’s into a full-service tree care operation including 3 trucks, a 12” chipper, 56’ towable man lift, another full-time climbing arborist, and additional staff through the busy Spring/Summer/Fall seasons. Adam successfully sold this business in late 2019.
Adam also co-owned the Wiarton Fitness Centre with his wife Jessica. By taking a special interest in fitness, Adam challenged himself to be more positive and is now a Personal Trainer with Canfitpro.
