Area apple growers are excited about this fall's bounty.

The crop in the St. Croix Valley is "excellent," according to Charlie Johnson, owner of Whistling Well Farm in Denmark Township.

"There's a really nice crop this year," according to the message greeting customers at Apple Junction.

This is welcome news to growers who faced a lean year last season when hail damaged the area's apple crop.
