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.
