Back in mid-May of 2015, there was an unusual frost that happened one night. For most people living in Michigan, it wasn’t a big deal. Typical fluctuating spring weather. However, one industry suffered because of this frost, cherry farmers. The quick overnight freeze caused, on some farms, a 47% drop in crop production. Overnight freezes and other weather deterrents are unavoidable and can be devastating.
People Don’t See What You See
When most people imagine when they see a farm is cherry trees rolling over the hills as far as they can see. They imagine taking the family to the farm to pick strawberries and let the kids pet the goats and horses. They see the fun side of the farm. They don’t see the farm as a business. They don’t consider the business side of things. People often overlook the fact that bills and employees both need to be paid. They don’t understand the stress that can take over when running a business, especially one that is so dependent on the weather cooperating. People on the outside looking in just don’t see these things. Fortunately, we do.
