BOSTON—Cranberries are a big industry in Massachusetts, so big that the state's delegation has formed a bipartisan Congressional Cranberry Caucus.

The caucus hopes to educate members of Congress, their staffs and federal agencies about cranberry production in Massachusetts and across the country. It will focus specifically on conservation, environmental and nutritional benefits and concerns, as well as the international trade of cranberries.

Massachusetts has more than 600 cranberry farms, supplying thousands of jobs.

Senators John Kerry and Scott Brown are launching the caucus, along with U.S. Reps. Jim McGovern and William Keating.
