Our Heritage

Our Heritage

Family is the Core of Our Business.

For years, we have brought you the finest fruit products with the thought, "From our family to your family!" But what exactly is our family?

Quite simply, Knouse Foods is a family of 1,500 men and women working together to provide the highest quality fruit products for our customers, opportunities for our employees, and services to our community.

At the heart of our family is a partnership with the growers who own our company.

This cooperative includes fruit growers along the Appalachian Mountains and throughout the Midwest. Together, we have worked to bring you fruit products that meet the highest standard of all: "We would proudly serve these products to our own family, as well as yours."

If we can't say that, it doesn't earn the Knouse Foods name. You see, we're as committed to preserving our unbroken history of excellence as we are to protecting the American dream by allowing the family farm to prosper.

That should give you a lot of confidence as you sit down with your family. If you are serving your loved ones Knouse fruit products from Musselman's, Lucky Leaf, Apple Time, Lincoln or Speas Farm brands, you are serving them the very best.

From our family to your family: Enjoy!

Tradition of Caring

There's more than strength in numbers. There's quality. Integrity. And a pride in product that seems to grow exponentially with time. Or so it seems, given the history of Knouse Foods.

More than 50 years ago, in the Appalachian region of Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia, a prominent group of neighboring independent fruit growers recognized the enormous potential at their fingertips. Given their shared commitment to raising quality fruit, they formed an alliance and began working together as a grower cooperative.
