cranberry facts

  • The first Cranberry marsh in Wisconsin dates back to the 1830's!  Before we even became  a State!

  • On April 5, 2004, Governor Doyle signed a bill naming the cranberry Wisconsin's state fruit.

  • The cranberry has a large impact on Wisconsin's economy. Wisconsin's top fruit crop provides about 7,200 jobs and contributes approximately $330 million to the state's economy.

  • Various types of wildlife can be found on cranberry marshes, including Blue Herons, Trumpeter Swans, Sand Hill Cranes, Fox, Deer, Geese, Wolves, Bears, Eagles, Osprey, Loons and more.

  • Cranberry marshes help control erosion, filter water, slow the runoff of heavy rains and replenish underground aquifers.

  • Studies demonstrate cranberry juice helps protect urinary tract health. The National Kidney Foundation recommends one 8-oz. glass of cranberry juice each day to support good kidney health.

  • Cranberry juice also contains antioxidants and other compounds, which may help prevent Cardiovascular Disease and Cancer.
