The majority of orchards throughout Door County once speckled with the red dots of cherries are finishing the harvesting process this week. Overcoming an excessively wet spring and early summer season, the cherry crop has responded nicely the past two weeks, according to Steve Wood of Wood Orchard in Door County. Wood says he believes the county has plenty of cherries for the rest of the season.
Wood says the area experienced one major hail storm that severely affected 200 acres of orchards in Door County. He added that the heavy rainfalls in May and June caused some disease problems but the overall cherry crop appears above average.
