Additional Details:
About 400,000 barrels of Cape Cod Cranberries are harvested yearly. The cranberry bogs are dry when the pickers start to crawl over them with their large half-bushel scoops which are capable of scooping up four bushels an hour. Few berries pick as easily. Most of the crop is canned in the form of juice or sauce and shipped all over the world
