DETROIT (WWJ) – Some Michigan Grape farmers are expected to take a hit – after frost in the Southwest part of the state killed thousands of acres or grapes grown for juice.

A surveyor with Welch’s puts the damage at about 10,000 acres and $20 million.

Welch’s gets nearly a fifth of its grapes from Southwestern Michigan.

Last year farmers in the region made $24 million selling grapes.
