Farmers React to Wacky Spring Weather

Wacky weather this spring is affecting farms throughout Northern Michigan, including Endroad Farms in Falmouth in Missaukee County. Duane Molhoek says he was able to get a head start on planting thanks to the early warm streak, but shifting weather the last few weeks has been challenging. Frost damaged a portion of his alfalfa sprouts over the weekend. But he says once it starts to warm up again, the damaged crops will most likely recover. He hopes to harvest them in about two weeks… weather permitting. 9&10's Alex Jokich and photojournalist Corey Petee have more details after seeing the weather's impact on the farm.
