Michigan fruit crops devastated by crazy spring weather

This is horrible news for Michigan's fruit farmers who have seen the tart cherry crop all but destroyed and the sweet cherry, apple, and other fruit crops severely damaged.

I'm not sure what the total affect will be on the cherry products that we carry in our gourmet Michigan gift baskets. Most likely, we will be faced with a choice of higher costs (due to little if any tart cherry crop this year) in some instances or the likelihood of having to replace some of our cherry products with other Michigan fruits.

We'll keep you posted on our cherry product availability and at the same time - we'll keep a lookout for other products to carry in the event that cherry products become too costly or unavailable.
