How has this summer treated Michigan farmers?
The end of summer is at hand and we wanted to find out how the year treated Michigan farmers so far.
They were slammed in 2012 by a cold, wet spring and a hot, dry summer.
Earlier this summer we spoke with Macomb Township farmer Ken DeCock to see how things were going for him and got mixed reviews. So we wanted to check in with him to get an end-of-summer view.
He joined us today from Boyka's Farm Market in Macomb Township. Tree fruit specialist William Shane with the Southwest Michigan Research and Extension Center also joined us.
Listen to the full interview above.
