Johnson's Orchards Suffers as a Result of Storms

Posted: Updated:

Bedford County, VA - Johnson's Orchards has taken a serious hit over the last few months as the constant showers have caused fewer people to visit.

The storms have not only driven customers away, but are also impacting the plants. The fruits are more watered-down, losing some of their sweet taste. There is also a serious threat of fungus because the plants have been too wet to treat.

Owner Danny Johnson says that he's been somewhat frustrated, but knows he can't change mother nature. Johnson says, "I've never seen a season like this".
