Description:

More than any program about rural life, New Jersey's Red October should appeal to most anyone with an interest in agricultural community, advancements, history, science and engineering. New Jersey is the third largest producer of cranberries in the United States, after Wisconsin and Massachusetts. Today, in the sandy, acidic soils of the New Jersey Pine Barrens, descendants of the earliest cranberry pioneers raise their crops on the same land farmed by their ancestors as far back as 1840. The evolution from hand harvest to present day methods is beautifully detailed through archival images, footage, and first-hand accounts. Also revealed in New Jersey's Red October is the most current scientific research about advanced cultural practices as well as the many health benefits of consuming cranberries.

Quotes:

You will quickly learn that farming is not an office job. The program is more than a story about berries and how the industry grew. It's the personal stories of farmers trying to make a crop in New Jersey's cranberry bogs., NJN Programming Director
