Michigan Peach Farmers Suffer Losses After Winter’s Extreme Cold

Remember the extreme cold we saw last winter?

Michigan’s peach farmers definitely do.

The -18 degree temperatures did a number to peach trees across the state.

Not only did many trees not produce fruit, but a large number of trees died.

When the temperature gets below -12 peach trees suffer.

For Michigan farmer Kenny Stover that meant his business took a major hit.

Kenny may lose his entire peach orchard in the next five years as the trees slowly show signs of dying.

Fortunately, he hedged his bet on peaches and has other crops.

He does plan on replanting peach trees, too.
