SHELBY (WKZO) -- Peaches grown in Michigan will be harder to come by this summer. The harsh winter is being blamed for wiping out up to 30-percent of the crop according to Oceana County farmer Dave Rabe. He says his farm's proximity to Lake Michigan helped his trees avoid serious damage, but other growers had low temperatures hit 19 degrees below zero this winter.
