Drought affecting Schweizer Orchards in St. Joseph

The current drought has affected Schweizer Orchards in St. Joseph. While irrigated water has helped produce peppers, cucumbers and vegetables at the orchard, water levels are dropping leading to concerns the water will run out. The drought will probably affect this year’s orchard crop and possibly next year’s. Except for the size of the apples, Schweizer Orchards says this year’s apple crop is likely unaffected.
