The U-S-D-A National Agricultural Statistic Service reports Wisconsin's cranberry harvest tops the nation for the 25th year in a row.

The estimated five-point-six barrels of fruit generate about one-billion dollars in economic impact, providing thousands of Wisconsin jobs. National production is expected to be a little over nine-billion barrels. Cranberries are grown on 21-thousand acres in 20 counties in central and northern reaches of the state.
