Who We Are
OAMP represents over 150 Ohio apple growers. As stewards of the land, Ohio apple growers are committed to quality, family and health.
Our mission is to provide the finest locally grown produce.
This commitment rewards consumers with a wide selection of quality products.
Ohio's orchards have been maintained for generations. They utilize lower pesticide production methods to protect the environment and reduce the use of sprays. Ohio Apples are a healthy choice, from our family to yours.
What is the Ohio Apples Marketing Program?
Ohio apple producers voted by referendum in 1970 and 1990 to assess themselves for the purposes of promotion and research. OAMP basically offers a way for apple growers to pool resources to meet their common needs. This program is authorized under section 924 of the Ohio Revised Code.
Ohio Apples Marketing Program educates consumers about the nutrional benefits of apples, the freshness and qualtiy of Ohio grown apples, and the support of Ohio's agricultural economy through buying local produce.
