Organic Fruit Growers Association The Organic Fruit Growers Association is organized exclusively for charitable, scientific, and education purposes. We share information and encourage research to improve the organic production and marketing of fruit and to represent the interests of growers engaged in such. We connect individuals, growers, businesses, researchers to collaborate within the industry.
Holist Orchard Network Community Orcharding depends on local growers raising nutritious fruit for customers who recognize the full value of such pioneering work. Appreciable challenges need to be met to bring an organic fruit harvest to table. Our holistic orchard network focuses on sharing sustainable fruit growing techniques that emphasize orchard soil health which in turn makes for healthy trees and thus healthy apples and -- blessed be! -- healthy people.
