Don't worry about us. Our price supports and govt. subsidized crop insurance will cover it this year.

Contact any local farmer you know and ask him if he's EVER carried crop insurance on cherries. There’s a VERY high premium cost to purchase crop insurance for cherries and the indemnification they would receive in a year like this wouldn't even begin to cover their cost.
