On Long Beach Peninsula, that thin finger of sand extending from Southern Washington’s coastline, Starvation Alley Cranberry Farm is busy growing your new favorite cocktail mixer. In a dark bog surrounded by 10 acres of Northwest farmland, each late fall and winter young owners Jared Oakes and Jessika Tantisook wade through the waist-high water to skim and collect cranberries every October. Waterlogged boggers yank thick fistfuls of weeds entangling the crimson haul before sending the berries to be cleaned and flash-frozen. All photos by Giles Clement.
