It’s been a bit of a rough ride for area farmers, but the majority are keeping afloat just fine.
Dusty Zamecnik sits on the Norfolk Agriculture Board, and tells myFM it’s been a mix of good and bad with this heat.
On EZ Grow Farms, the warmth has pushed up the date for picking blueberries, but other crops are still taking a bit of a beating.
Most farms were able to rebound nicely after the wet start to spring that included a hail storm.
Zamecnik figures that in the end, most farms in the area will have a good year, not amazing but not as bad as some may have feared initially.
