STURGEON BAY —
The effects of hail storm in Door County two months ago are
rotting on the branches at Fellner Orchards in the Town of
Sevastopol, just north of Sturgeon Bay. Grower Bob Fellner says he
lost 60 acres of apples that he can't even sell for juice. He says
it's a complete loss.
At the Peninsular
Agricultural Research Station in Sturgeon Bay, Superintendent Matt
Stasiak says every type of fruit crop on its 20-acre was affected
by the hail. Stasiak tells WLUK-TV (http://bit.ly/1si2B3i
) the physical damage to the apples was beyond anything he could
The storm cut a
narrow path through parts of northern Door County. Growers there
say this year's crop looks pretty good, but is behind because of a
cold spring and late bloom.
