Travis Schoenborn is the latest in a long line of apple producers in rural west Michigan. He is committed to the long-term development of the family orchard and to providing a solid foundation in agriculture for his two young children while also giving them the opportunity to follow their goals. Schoenborn is presently employed at his family’s orchard, EDS Schoenborn Orchards, located near Conklin. The orchard is nestled in one of the best apple-picking spots in the country. According to the Michigan Apple Committee, only Washington and New York produce more apples than Michigan, and the family orchard is the top hotspot for apple-producing farms.
