Cranberry Crisis in Massachusetts Could Mean Trouble for Your Holiday Gatherings

A number of cranberry growers in the Bay State are potentially looking at a crisis this harvest season.  

According to a report from the Associated Press, not only is the drought this year reason for concern for Massachusetts cranberry growers, but a recent task force report discovered many cranberry growers in the Bay State were in ‘dire straits.’ Some of the challenges faced by the growers, whose families have tended bogs for generations include rising production costs, decreasing crop values, changing consumer habits and increasing competition from other U.S. states and Canada.

Cranberries remain Massachusetts’ top food crop and official state fruit.
