Permalink Organic Cranberry Growers Carving a Niche in Washington

Washington-state cranberry growers Jared Oakes and Jessika Tantisook have been producing organic cranberries for more than five years, reports Seattle Magazine. Hampered at first by the challenges of organic growing and a general lack of available knowledge on the subject, the couple has now expanded their operation. In addition to growing and marketing organic cranberries themselves, they're paying other local farmers a premium to convert to organic production. Washington now has 300 acres of organic cranberry production. Oakes and Tantisook's Starvation Alley wet-processed cranberries make their way into juice and liqueur acclaimed by mixologists.
