Points North: Politics and cherries

Nov 6, 2020

Northern Michigan fruit grower John King appeared in a video for Joe Biden.

Cherry growers mixed business and politics this election season. That's not something the industry has been known to do.


In September Jill Biden toured King Orchards in Antrim County. Then John King appeared in a video for the former Vice President addressing the issue of climate change. 

 

The small fruit industry has also been in the middle of international trade disputes for years. That’s had politicians from both sides offering solutions and seeking support from northern Michigan farmers.
