Farm to School

In 2007, Gavin Orchards started our Farm to School Program.
We have had great success with our program and have added a number of schools each year. We supply apples to school districts in Ottawa, Kent, and Muskegon counties.  Our program benefits school districts by providing fresh, healthy, tasty food at reasonable prices.  This program also benefits the economy by supporting local jobs and sustainable agriculture.  If your school district is interested in participating please contact our partners at Cherry Capital Foods.

If you prefer you may contact Heather Ratliff, Farm to School Sales Rep at 231.943.5010 x114 or by email at

.We look forward to serving your school.  Fresh is More!
