We also have a 95% or more loss this year. No point opening without apples to sell!!
Based on information I have heard from friends and family in Michigan, the losses are going to be a lot higher than 50%.
Granted, some of the crops may have been lost down in my area. However, there's been positive news regarding the orchards in the Upper Peninsula and northwestern regions of the state. Thanks to great relationships with them, those orchards are willing to lend a hand to those of us with weather damage. On that note, cider and Michigan apples will still be available; just not as abundant as we're used to.
