New York apple harvest

Monday, June 04, 2012

Apple farmers in New York are dealing with the worst harvest in 70 years.

Apple growers across the state say they've lost about 80-percent of their crop. Farmers say bad weather destroyed a record number of apple orchards this year.

Growers say they'll have to do some major budget cutting to make up for the big losses. Farmers are hoping some of the damaged apples can be sold to make cider.
