Blake to donate $1 per bushel to Forgotten Harvest
 
OAK PARK, Mich. — Armada, Mich.-based Blake Farms recently announced as part of its longstanding partnership with food rescue organization Forgotten Harvest, it will donate $1 per every bushel picked by guests to Forgotten Harvest the entire month of September in support of Hunger Action Month.
 
Four years ago, the Blake family started the Forgotten Harvest Orchard of Hope program by donating two acres of land at its Big Apple Orchard to Forgotten Harvest. 500 apple trees were planted and are harvested each fall – this season, Blake’s expects 50,000 pounds to be picked.

These fresh, nutritious apples are then distributed free of charge to more than 250 agency partners in metro Detroit. Apples can be picked at two Blake Farms locations: Blake’s Big Apple (Forgotten Harvest’s Orchard of Hope is also located here),  71485 North Ave., Armada, MI 48005; and Blake’s Orchard & Cider Mill, 17985 Armada Center Rd., Armada, MI 48005.
