Summer is finally upon us. And you know what that means? We are getting closer to cherries, peaches, and apples! While the spring has been very difficult on a lot of growers, including ourselves, we wanted to update all of our fabulous customers on our crop situation this season. During the winter and spring, we have been extremely proactive, and while we have lost some crops, we have been able to save a lot due to running of our frost fans. We feel extremely fortunate with the crops we have. We would like everyone to know that while we feel extremely fortunate, a lot of farms have had a rough spring. We wish all the farmers the best, as we know the off season weather can be devastating on farmers not only in Michigan, but around the country.

As for our upcoming fruit, sweet cherries will be available towards the end of June, and the crop is wonderful this year. Peaches will follow shortly thereafter, approximately the first part of August. As of now peaches look good and continue to grow. Apples will follow around Labor Day weekend. Please understand that while we are excited to provide you with an update on our crops this season, information can change with the weather. We are hopeful that this season will be another great one for not only us, but for all of our customers.

Continue to check our website as specific fruit gets closer for the most up-to-date information. We look forward to seeing all of you again. For more information, go to www.craneorchards.com or call 269-561-8651.
