BRUCEVILLE, Ind. (WTHI) - The continuing drought is no doubt taking a toll on area farms and orchards.
Unfortunately, this is reality for the Apple Hill Orchard in Knox County, Indiana.
Owners Brad and Karen Black say even though they have a crop to sell this year, their yield of peaches is much smaller.
Their apple crop is even worse.
"Our peaches are a little bit smaller this year than normal, but also we did lose about 40% of our crop," Black said. "But, we have more than what we expected and what maybe some people don't have."
On the positive side of things, the peaches that have survived at Apple Hill Orchard are sweeter and are continuing to be picked for customers.
