Orchards head into summer in good shape

The weather may have gotten tricky at times, but Hillside Apples owner Bill Roethle believes his crop will be good again this year. The southern part of the state had to deal with near-frost conditions in the middle of May and northeast Wisconsin had some heavy rains to contend with just as apple and cherry trees were reaching full blossom. After surveying his Casco orchard, Roethle believes they will still have an average to slightly above average crop this year.

Roethle says the threat of COVID-19 may change his store operations a little bit when apples start coming off the trees this fall. He believes people will still come to pick their own apples because people will want to get outside and it is easy to socially distance at his orchard.
