Cranberries thriving in drought


WAUSHARA COUNTY (WKOW) -- This year's drought has been tough on most crops. But, there's one that's thriving in it: cranberries.

About 1,500 cranberry enthusiasts gathered in Waushara County to talk about this year's growing season.

Cranberries are irrigated, so growers say the lack of rain we had earlier didn't really affect them.

"If anything, we've probably seen more positives with increase in temps. More growth, Berries are larger," says Mark Mahoney of Owen Rock Cranberries.

The cranberry crop is expected to be harvested and eaten in just a few months.
