HOLLAND, OH (Toledo News Now) - The price of apples has increased 15 to 20 percent this year. Orchard owners say they are not worried about losing customers.
A frost that happened in late spring killed 50 to 60 percent of the apple crop in Northwest Ohio and parts of Michigan. When the apple supply is low, the prices increase.
Vice President of MacQueen Orchards Jeff MacQueen said they have not seen a dip in the number of customers.
A gallon of apple cider will cost $7. MacQueen said people are still coming by for it, willing to pay the price for their favorite fall tradition.
"Every fall is about the same. We get a lot of people come out just because it's kinda the thing to do. It's fall season, you want apples cider donuts, it's just the thing to do," said Vice President of MacQueen Orchards Jeff MacQueen.
