Cranberry farming in Newfoundland and Labrador is a relatively recent development, only starting in the late 1990’s. A unique approach was taken by the Provincial Government to evaluate the potential for industry development in the province. This approach involved the establishment of pilot sites throughout the province in collaboration with private sector partners.
Since the initiation of this project, cranberries have been developed in the Province over five sites, one managed by the Province (Deadman’s Bay) as a research site and the others managed by private sector partners/owners.
Commercialization of the province’s cranberry industry is the next step in the process that began in 1996. Cranberry commercialization has provided expansion for four existing private farms.
