Term: cranberry industry in Wisconsin
Native to bogs across northern North America, cranberries have long been an important agricultural product in Wisconsin, and the state is the nation's leading commercial producer. The first commercial cranberry marshes were established near Berlin in the mid-19th century, and soon spread throughout central Wisconsin. View more information elsewhere at wisconsinhistory.org.
