- The Cranberry Institute has a cranberry health newsletter available called Cranberry Health News
- In addition to the new Weed ID guide out of Québec that was recently translated into English, Québec also has two other publications (items 2 and 3 in the list below) that have been translated into English that may be of interest to folks:
- Identification Guide for Weeds in Cranberries:
- Identification guide to the weeds of Québec: https://www.craaq.qc.ca/Publications-du-CRAAQ/identification-guide-to-the-weeds-of-quebec/p/PEDI0133

- Another UMaine Extension website was launched recently as well — the purpose of this one is to assist new farmers in Maine! Check it out! http://extension.umaine.edu/new-farmers/
- Check out the grower cooperative — United Cranberry Growers Cooperative. It is based in Wisconsin but invites independent growers, wherever in the world you may reside, to join them.
- Check out the free site called “Maine Ag Trader“ where you can buy, sell, swap, and trade agricultural equipment. Also, from there, you can join their partner site, mefoodtrader.org, in order to try to sell your cranberry produce directly to Maine consumers! [see also the MPBN Story].
