Blueberry farmer Ted Wach of Wach Farms, says frost conditions at his Bolingbroke farm took out 99 percent of his berries.
"The freeze came and just about everyone of them that we had. There's barely enough out there that we got out there that my wife got to make a pie," said Wach. He and his wife bought the farm 10 years ago. Opening it up each summer for people to come out and pick blueberries from their 2.5 acres. While they've had setbacks before, Wach says he's never seen anything like this before.
"Once you get down to about 20, 22 degrees and lower, your ability to protect that crop is severely reduced," said Peed. Wach agrees, but he says he hates turning away the 1,500 to 2,000 people that make the trek to his farm to pick berries. Wach says he sees people from Florida, Tennessee and all over Georgia.
