ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — It’s that wonderful time of year, when vineyards and orchards come alive throughout the Finger Lakes region.
The apples are looking great at Lake Breeze Fruit Farms in Sodus. A bonus there this week as the Bills Barn serves as a backdrop — fitting scene in time for this week’s season opener.
The folks at Lake Breeze grow 20 varieties of apples and they say this season’s crop is solid — not spectacular, but very good.
They say the harsh spring and tricky summer made growing conditions challenging. They just started picking apples a couple of days ago and will do so through October.
