NEW JERSEY (FOX5NY) - The Lee family of Chatsworth, New Jersey, has been bogged down in the cranberry business for nearly 150 years. Part of the Ocean Spray Cooperative, the family now grows on 135 bogs.
Cranberries are big sellers at the holidays, but their journey begins in the spring. New Jersey is one of the top cranberry producers -- third in the country -- churning out an impressive harvest every year.
The New Jersey farms are just a slice of Ocean Spray's unique cooperative. The company also has operations in Wisconsin, Massachusetts, Oregon, Washington State, and Chile.
