Workers Harvested Cranberries Early Thursday Morning In Rochester

ROCHESTER, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Workers were outside early this morning harvesting cranberries in a bog in Rochester.

Brian Wick is the Executive Director of the Cape Cod Cranberry Growers Association.

"The forecast is what it was last year, which is a good crop," Wick said.

Although the crop is doing alright, the heat is hindering its growth.

"Potential for a better crop, but the drought played a big role in that, holding things back a little," Wick said.

Trailers came by to get the berries on board, which are then soaked in a washer before heading to the Ocean Spray processing plant in Carver. They are then frozen and used for cranberry products across the country.
