Down on the bog

Did you ever rip open a package of our Valdosta Pecans Glazed Mix and ask yourself, “Hmmm, I wonder where cranberries come from?”

Well, according to the American Cranberry Growers Association, cranberries grow on low-lying vines in sandy marshes called “bogs.”

Come harvest time, the bogs are flooded with 15-18 inches of water. Water reels are used to churn the water, separating the cranberries from their vines.

Since cranberries float, they bob to the surface where they’re collected for Sahale Snacks® Mixes.
