Farmers see huge apple numbers

Posted:

It's a record setting year for apples. 

Local farmers are saying they've got more apples than they know what to do with.  Great weather and not much frost are the main reasons for the high numbers.

The biggest winner may be consumers.

"It's great for the consumer in that they have more choice and more places to go, and the prices should be lower because of such an abundance of apples," says Bill Teichman a local farmer.

A shortage on apple crates has also been a result of this year's crop.
