Jonathan Rautanen, 4 of Beach Park, leads a group of family members and members of the Klug family while picking apples at Royal Oak Farm Orchard Tuesday, September 11, 2012 in Harvard. An early freeze combined with drought conditions cut this year's harvest at the farm by about 70%, causing the orchard to limit the amount pickers can take to about 10 apples.
