Congressman Fred Upton tours Berrien County orchards

BERRIEN CO., Mich. -- On Wednesday, Congressman Fred Upton toured Berrien County orchards to check out the crop damage.

Hard freezes wiped out most of the fruit crop this spring -- from grapes, to cherries, to peaches.

Upton told us the visit blew him away.

"I've never seen anything like this. We've had problems with fire-blight, and things like that, which we've been able to deal with. But, there's just nothing --row after row, after row," said Upton.

Upton said the state has to act first and declare the region a disaster area.

But before that can happen, farmers need numbers showing just how big of a loss they suffered.
