Cranberries the topic in Cherryland discussion

The state’s official fruit can thank Door County for helping it get a jump start on growing every season. Door County UW-Extension Agriculture Agent Annie Deutsch will present some of her findings on cranberries when she hosts the session at the Aging and Disability Resource Center in Sturgeon Bay on March 12th. The area’s soils make large-scale cranberry production a pipe dream, but Deutsch says the success of the state’s number one fruit crop owes some gratitude to Door County.


The 1 p.m. presentation will cover how cranberries are grown and harvested in the state, which produces 60 percent of the nation’s crop every year.
