|Maine cranberry growers say it’s hard to stay out of the red|
Maine Sunday Telegram - 11/24/2013. By Mary Pols - There wasn’t a thing wrong with Dresden farmer David Popp’s cranberries this year. They colored up nicely and there was plenty of fruit, arriving not too early, not too late. Yet he mowed down most of his 3.5 acres of vines while they were covered in the dark red berries, harvesting only about 3,000 pounds instead of the usual 60,000 to 70,000.
