In 1978, with the blessing of MSU administrators, fruit growers in NW Michigan formed a non-profit foundation and conducted a successful fund drive to establish a research station in NW Michigan. Land was acquired that fall and in spring of 1979 ground was broken to establish the NWMHRS. A unique partnership was formed with the NW Michigan Horticultural Research Foundation providing the facilities and Michigan State University providing the operation. Improvements in the facilities over the past 25 years has been made possible through the support of the Michigan Department of Agriculture, the Michigan legislature and Michigan's governor.
Please join us in celebrating the first 25 years of this successful partnership between MSU, MDA, and the fruit industry. We are proud of what has been accomplished during the first 25 years and excited about what will be accomplished during the next 25 years.
