Farmer in Apple Orchard in Conklin, Michigan
Travis Schoenborn is the latest member of a multi-generational line of apple growers in rural west Michigan. He is committed to the family orchard's long-term prosperity and to giving his two young children a solid foundation in agriculture while giving them room to follow their aspirations.
Schoenborn is currently employed by the Conklin-area EDS Schoenborn Orchards, the family's orchard. The position places the orchard in one of the best areas in the nation for collecting apples - according to the Michigan Apple Committee, only Washington and New York State produce more apples than Michigan, and Schoenborn Orchards are firmly located in one of Michigan's top hotspots for apple production.
