Dick Stukas moves a crate of Honeycrisp apples Monday at Stukas Farm on Ferry Road in Lewiston. He said he is pleased with this fall’s crop. “I hear that the crop is off this year, but I don’t see it. We have a real heavy crop and we are supplying three other orchards . . . That’s part of the industry. When someone needs help, you try to help them,” he said. Stukas is the third generation of his family to grow apples on the farm since 1933. His children, Thomas and Heather, are the fourth. Daryn Slover/Sun Journal

Susan Stukas and her dog, Newman, drive through the apple orchards Monday at Stukas Farm on Ferry Road in Lewiston. “As soon as you can put a sweatshirt on, they are here,” Stukas said about customers who come each fall to pick apples. Picking fruit is not the only reason people come to the farm. More people come to see Newman than to pick apples,” she said. Daryn Slover/Sun Journal
