SPARTA, Mich. — On the first official day of fall, Schweitzer Orchards is busy continuing to harvest their entire apple crop for the season.

Schweitzer Orchards Operations Manager Nick Schweitzer says after a spring battling frost, many Michigan apple farmers still have 50 to 70 percent of their apple crop in good shape.

Harvest will continue through November with several different varieties of apples to offer.
