Abstract
  • Cranberries were first planted in 1885 by Charles Dexter McFarlin, a Cape Cod cranberry grower who came to Coos County and set out vines he brought from Massachusetts. The original planting is still in production. This is the only bog built between 1885 and 1905 found during this survey. From 1906 to 1925, 8 bogs were started. These now total over 55 acres, more than 10 per cent of total cranberry acreage in Oregon. From 1926 to 1945, about 179 acres were started by 43 growers. The greatest number of acres were started after 1946. Within the past decade, 87 growers have started bogs totaling slightly over 277 acres. Sixty-one per cent of the present growers became interested in cranberries during the last 10 years, and have built nearly 53 per cent of the acres now growing cranberries.
