With thousands of anticipated visitors flocking to Door County to witness the spring blossoms this month, one local orchard owner says you may have a little longer wait this year. Steve Wood of Wood Orchard in Egg Harbor says the cooler temperatures may delay the blooming slightly this year. He gives the typical timeline for the cherry and apple blossoms.
Door County has over 2,500 acres of cherry orchards alone, according to the recent Door County Visitor’s Bureau newsletter. Reportedly over eight million pounds of cherries are produced by area orchards every year during the summer adding to Door County’s economy.
