Talkin' cranberries

Talkin' cranberries

By John Mercure. CREATED Aug 6, 2014

Cranberries are big business in Wisconsin. A very big business.

Sixty percent of America's cranberries are grown in Wisconsin.  

We grow and harvest enough cranberries in Wisconsin to provide every man, woman and child in the world with 26 cranberries annually.  That is a lot of cranberries.

The economic impact is significant. And they are yummy.

Mikaela Balfany of the Wisconsin State Cranberry Growers Association was with us live at the State Fair.
