Cranberries – The Roundup Begins

Owen Rock Cranberries: boom on the  reel.

The roundup of cranberries begin as workers position the boom  reel. Once properly positioned, the boom is slowly unloaded from the reel across the cranberry bed.

The roundup of cranberries begins. Using Deere power, the boom is gradually tightened drawing berries into the loading area.

The leading end of the boom is connected to a tractor which is then slowly used to tighten the boom around the cranberries.  Eventually the leading end of the boom is attached to a take up reel in the loading area.
