USApple Presents at Premier Apple Forum

USApple attended the 2024 Premier Apple Forum in Syracuse, NY. Chris Gerlach presented a comprehensive history and forecast of U.S. and Canadian apple crops, while Diane Kurrle provided an update on the activities in Congress and the Biden Administration that are, or will be, impacting the apple industry. We always look forward to the engaging discussions at this annual event.

Continuing their New York travels, USApple’s Chris, Diane, Jessa, and Lynsee headed west to visit several USApple members, including Motts, United Apple Sales, Orchard Dale Fruit Co., and Lake Ontario Fruit Inc.

At Orchard Dale, USApple facilitated a meeting between apple growers and Representative Claudia Tenney (R-NY 24). Orchard Dale owners Beth and Bobby Brown, along with many local growers, effectively highlighted key issues and advocated for the needs of apple growers.
