Northern Michigan Farmers Expect Large Fruit Crop
Farmers say this year's weather is helping produce a strong fruit crop. Michigan growers expect the state's crop to be significantly larger than last year. Local farmers say they are very pleased with the fruit they're harvesting so far, but it will be several months before everything is picked. Farmer White's in Williamsburg says it has been harvesting cherries for about week now. Last year's harvest only took two days. Other crops, like grapes, also appear to be doing well. Chateau Chantal says they still have several months until harvest, which won't happen until October. 9 and 10's Kyle Mitchell and Photojournalist Derek MacIntyre have more on this year's fruit crop.
