Fresh Forward is a family farm cooperative that works to enhance our members’ businesses and improve access to locally grown produce. Formerly known as Ohio Apples managed by the Fruit Growers Marketing Association (FGMA), we have a rich history of working with independent farmers across the Great Lakes Region. Together, we bring the freshest, brightest produce to retail outlets everywhere.
Our farmers live at the center of everything we do. Their continued growth is everyone’s gain. When they succeed, they elevate our communities and environment, lift our economy, and help people lead healthier lives. That’s what inspires us to advocate for them every day.
