Cranberry Boom

Cranberry Boom

Cranberry boom is a floating barrier that is used to corral the cranberries after cranberry farmers have removed the cranberries from the vines. These lightweight yet durable booms are strung around the floating cranberries and allow the berries to be pulled towards the shore and concentrated at the preferred extraction point. These cranberry booms are an alternative to the traditional boards that have been used to contain and corral the cranberry crops in the bogs. Because they are lighter than the boards, they are easier for the harvesters to deploy, manipulate, remove, and store. These cranberry booms are designed to provide a freeboard height of 4 inches above the waterline, allowing the cranberries to stack to the 4 inches as the boom is retrieved.
