Cranberries: The juicy rubies of fall!

Ben Gilmore, followed by his brother Kirby, ride picking machines through his cranberry bog during wet harvesting at Gilmore Cranberry, on Oct. 5 in South Carver, Mass. The picking machine is like a giant egg beater that knocks the berries off the vines. Cranberry harvesting machines are not made by big companies, so farmers have to build their own. These machines were bought from a fellow grower.
