The cranberry harvest in northern Wisconsin is typically six weeks long starting at the beginning of October and it can be grueling work.
Last year, Matthew Rethaber worked on the field crew for a cranberry harvest at James Lake Farms, an organic cranberry marsh in Three Lakes. As part of our series We Live Up Here, he shares memories of last year's harvest.

Last fall I got a job working on a cranberry marsh called James Lake Farms.
