Welcome To Cranberry Country
The Tomah/Warrens area is known as “Wisconsin’s Cranberry Country”. With more than 2,500 acres of cranberry marshes dotting the region, this area is an important player in the state’s number one fruit crop. Cranberries play an integral role in the local agricultural economy while providing a unique tourism attraction, and have been grown commercially in Wisconsin for over 150 years. That’s a lot of history for one tiny berry. During that time, cranberry growers have adapted their production methods to the environment, changes in agricultural technology and changes in the marketplace. In addition to developing new ways of growing cranberries, they’ve also created new ways of using the fruit. You’ll learn all about that – and more – during a visit to the Wisconsin Cranberry Discovery Center.
