Cherryfield has 8,000 acres of blueberry barrens in Washington County, and owns a total of 41,500 acres there. The cranberry bogs are expected to cost more than $45 million to build, and would eventually employ more than 75 full-time and 200 seasonal workers. Cherryfield has a blueberry processing plant that sits empty much of the year, and the cranberries will be processed there for resale to processors. Details.
