TREMPEALEAU, Wis.-- The bizarre weather we've had this year is creating a smaller apple crop.
Ecker's Apple Farm in Trempealeau, along with other orchards nationwide, have not been able to produce as many apples as past years.
However, the orchard manager says there's still a good crop for eating and baking.16406042
"It's not as beautiful as it was last year, we've struggled through some problems like frost, drought and hail, aesthetically it's not beautiful, but there are still some really high quality apples here," said Jessica Ecker.
Apple production in Wisconsin is expected to drop by 61 percent to 20 million pounds.
