Owen Rock Cranberries

Owen Creek Cranberries is in Adams County Wisconsin.  The marsh has 105 acres devoted to cranberry production. Jim Bielmeier is onsite manager having been with operation since initial construction 25 years ago.

This is a modern operation using computer technology  throughout including operation of the irrigation system. Jim has designed and built much of the specialized equipment necessary to the operation.  Like all agribusiness it takes a lot of time, talent, finances and just plain old day in and day out hard work for cranberry growers to be successful.  I am impressed with how hard these guys work but yet how fragile their work is if mother nature has a grumpy day or two.

I have been fortunate to have been invited to spend some time on their piece of the world witnessing the beauty that makes Wisconsin unique. I will be sharing my images and the story they tell with you.  I hope you enjoy them.
