Cranberry Growing Is
The Dellmoor Cranberry company,
the largest growers of cranberries in
the northwest, are experimenting this
year on selling direct to the custom
er, cutting out to a certain extent the
middleman. Whether it can be worked
out or not remains to be seen, but J.
S. Dellinger, publisher of the Morning
Astorian and owner of Dellmoor, is a
firm believer in getting the products
of the land to the consumer at as low
a price as possible, thereby increasing
consumption and hopes to work it out
i n this line.
Cranberries this year, on account of
such a large surplus of other fruit, are
selling at the lowest figure in 10 years,
the price of a bushel of cranberries
delivered from Dellmoor marsh to any
place in Oregon and Washington is $4.
However, the industry is in fair shape.
In fact, at present prices there is a
profit left the grower where the pro
duction is on a large scale.
The Dellmoor cranberry marshes,
lecated in the northwest corner of the
state, can be designated as one of the
show places of Oregon. There are
40 acres planted to the red berries, SO
acres of which are now in full bear
ing. It takes five years to bring a
marsh into full bearing. This year
the crop harvested at Dellmoor was
over 9000 bushels, about a trainload of
berries. The banner acre yielded 750
bushels. Four acres on the project
gave a net return of 2634 bushels. This
was on a section of the marsh over 12
Growing cranberries cannot be call
ed a poor man's game. According to
the U. S. Department of Agriculture
it is the most highly specialized of
uny farm product grown. It costs
about $1500 per acre by the time you
get your first crop. You have every
thing to fight that the ordinary fruit
raiser has to go up against with a lot
of extras thrown in. Owing to the
nature of the low-lying ground on
which cranberries are produced Jack
rrost is the biggest enemy that the
cranberry grower has to face. Frost
fought by flooding the marshes
where it is possible to get water. In
fact, a marsh without a plentiful
supply of water is a very poor prop
osition. Smudging is being resorted
to but this work has not been carried
far enough at Dellmoor to know
whether it will be successful or not,
A large amount of capital has been
invested in this industry in the north
west in the past 15 years. Like other
new enterprises owing to lack of ex
perience, cost of upkeep and neglect
many of the plantings have deterior
ated and a great deal of money has
been lost. On the other hand, cran
berry fields that have been scientifi
cally handled, like Dellmoor, have
proved to be a fine investment. The
marshes at Dellmoor during the sum
mer months are a beautiful sight and
the public generally is always made
In order to help out this industry,
