Umlor Farms, Conklin, Mich. (August 22, 2013)
CONKLIN, Mich. (WZZM) -- The peach harvest in Michigan is in ful swing; it's a change from last year when farmers reported a big loss.
At Umlor Farms in Conklin, the workers were busy processing one of the late varieties of peaches.
The fruit this year is said to be much sweeter than years past. It is described as a medium sized-crop, that's great compared to last year when farmers had almost no fruit.
"There's really no comparison, because last year there was none. I think in our 20 acres, I had one bushel. This year, I'm about 75 percent. It's a good crop," said Dennis Umlor.
The only reason the crop isn't full is because of the lack of rain this summer. Business is still booming for the farms and orchards.
Umlor says people couldn't get Michigan peaches last year, so they are ordering extra this year.
