Cold Weather May Mean Bad News For Farmers

Sponsored by:

Sonora, CA — Cold weather and snow in the Sierra foothills worries some farmers.

Those with farms below the 1,500-foot elevation fear the cold may have damaged the bloom of stone fruit such as peaches.

Above that elevation, orchards and vineyards remain dormant and not vulnerable to the cold. Growers with trees that were in bloom won´t know for certain the extent of damage until April, when the fruit forms.
