Cranberry harvest

From a Sept 28 post at Hungeree:
The fall cranberry harvest started yesterday in Wisconsin where workers at the Elm Lake Cranberry marsh near Wisconsin Rapids and other cranberry marshes across the state started raking. Harvesters use rakes to gather cranberries and bring them to the surface where they're gathered up by a mechanical harvester for processing. Wisconsin is the largest cranberry producer in the world with 160,000 acres of land devoted to the production of the fruit and supplies more than 50% of the world cranberry output.

  1. That's terrific! I remember harvesting cranberries myself in childhood at swamps, but this is nowhere near... Thank you for sharing.

  2. I love these "from the air" photos - they give a different perspective.

  3. Those two cranberry harvesters don't appear to be Mexican.
