We did this in 2007 because of Crop Failure in Missouri and Illinois due to Freeze
We are hauling apples from Michigan this year. We are working with a small orchard in Berrien Springs, Michigan. This is just south of Benton Harbor, Michigan. We will be getting Jonathon, Yellow Delicious, Red Delicious, Jonagold and Honey Crisp Apples. The quality is excellent from the orchard in Michigan. As you can see from the pictures below, we are hauling the apples ourselves. We are making weekly trips with our own trucks. This is a full load of 261 bushels of apples. We weighed 23,960 lbs total for the truck and trailer on our first load from Michigan. We are licensed to carry 24,000 lbs. so we are close on our weight. It is a long trip, we have been leaving at 4:00 am and returning to St. Louis by 8:00 pm.
