ADDISON COUNTY — June saw a deluge of monumental proportions; early September was marked by unseasonable heat. What’s a farmer to do?
“The weather can be fickle,” noted Bill Suhr of Shoreham’s Champlain Orchards.
Nevertheless, Suhr and other Vermont apple growers are expecting an outstanding harvest in 2015.
“We have probably our largest crop ever, but we won’t know until it’s fully harvested,” Suhr said.
