The cherry picking season is starting early this summer in Door County. According to Steve Wood from Wood Orchards in Egg Harbor, the heat is bringing on cherry crop sooner than expected. Wood says he has heard that southern Door County orchards have begun picking operations. He says his orchard has fortunately avoided any wind or hail damage to this point of the season.
Wood says the cherries are about one week ahead of schedule and appear to be on target for a great crop.
