Cranberries are harvested by flooding the field with water, the berries come off the plants while underwater and then float to the surface. Fire hoses that are half-filled with air are then used to skim the floating berries to a conveyor that loads them into trucks. Cranberry juice is the most popular end product. When we go hiking we like to bring dried cranberries along as a snack. As cranberries are a good source of anti-oxidents, they are a tasty, healthy food.
