Michigan Farm Bureau issues plea for labor

Michigan Apples
Michigan Apples

LANSING (WKZO) -- Michigan Farm Bureau is putting out a call for farm workers to help with the apple crop.  "Help Wanted" postcards are being delivered to hundreds of registered farm labor contractors, mostly in Florida and Georgia, seeking the return of migrant labor to the state.

With Michigan's fruit crops being destroyed by weather last year, many workers didn't return this year to help with what's turning out to be a bumper crop of apples and a lot of cherries, blueberries and grapes.  The apple harvest is a primary concern, however, as there are just a few weeks left to get the fruit off the trees.
