MI Farm Bureau: Big Apple Crop, Pickers Needed

MI Farm Bureau: Big Apple Crop, Pickers Needed

The Michigan Farm Bureau is appealing across the southeastern U.S. for help with finding workers to harvest the state's bumper crop of apples.

The organization sent ``help wanted'' postcards this week to more than 300 registered farm labor contractors, mostly in Florida and Georgia. Horticulture specialist Ken Nye says growers have about six more weeks to get their apples off the trees and shipped to processors, fresh market retailers or storage.
