That's interesting.

Herein lies the greatest controversy concerning the City of Novi: it is
definitely known that the community was once called West Farmington, and that the
name was changed in 1830 to Novi. But there the facts end. The exact origin of the
unique name remains, to this day, a mystery.

LOL, yep, you are right. I had been looking at a chart that listed tons produced, then found the one I posted that was easier to read and messed up the measurement used.

Just think of how many cherries that would be if it were tons though

I remember going to Traverse City every year and picking our own cherries.
