Big Apple Crop For Cove


August 8, 2019

Herald of August 7, 1969

It looks like the largest and best apple crop in the Cove since the Cove Apple Packers Cooperative was established in 1962, according to Robert E. Meredith, an official at the Martinsburg plant. The processing plant will be operating this year under a marketing arrangement with Country Best and Agway Inc., and from all indications the fruit will be of high quality and very abundant. The processing is expected to start next week when the plant begins to work on pears. There are a few peaches but the Cove orchardists connected with CAP concentrate on the apple crop. A minimum of frost damage and ample rainfall should make this a truly big season, according to all forecasts.

Recent heavy rain storms in Roaring Spring brought complaints of flooding from property owners on Walnut and New streets at borough council’s meeting. The borough engineer has inspected the section where the flooding occurred and has informed council that it may be possible to divert storm water to relieve the flooding condition.
