On #EarthDay, we'd like to say thank you to the Michigan Apple growers who take great pride in being stewards of the land, and preserve a healthy environment for future generations by using recyclable packaging and shipping materials, composting tree trimmings and using environmentally-friendly lighting and cooling methods. They also keep a total of 36,500 acres of land in agriculture and are dedicated to sustaining the clean water and fertile soil that makes Michigan apples the most flavorful apples you can buy. Thanks for doing your part to help #CloseTheLoop.
