Applewood Fresh Growers emerges in Michigan
BY TAD THOMPSON
Two Michigan apple shipping companies are emerging from an ownership split of All Fresh GPS. “All Fresh will cease doing business as of March 31,” said Scott Swindeman.
The two companies filling the All Fresh void are Swindeman’s new company, Applewood Fresh Growers LLC, and Michigan Fresh Marketing LLC. Applewood Fresh Growers is owned by Swindeman and his family, which also owns the longstanding orchard and packing operation, Applewood Orchards Inc., located in Deerfield, MI. Applewood Orchards and Michigan Fresh Marketing LLC (which used to be owed by the Heeren family) joined forces several years ago to launch All Fresh.
