Cranberries are a seasonal staple of the state of Wisconsin. Today, they put food on the table for growers like Rocky Biegel. "We are fourth-generation cranberry growers, I worked for my father in law when I was in High School," said Biegel. "It's a very enjoyable way to live."
Biegel states his product could be down by ten to twenty percent this year. "I would say as a whole I think Wisconsin is going to be down this year.”
But the harvest isn't over yet, said Isaac Zarecki of the Wisconsin State Cranberry Growers Association. "They're just estimates," Zarecki told waow.com. "We really have a hard time knowing exactly what's going to happen until the last trucks take the cranberries to the receiving station in November."
