Rezin Cranberry Company was formed in 1931 by Dan Rezin when he purchased 40 acres of land in Wisconsin. It took him one year to make the first cranberry bed with nothing more than hard work, a wheelbarrow and a shovel. Today, 3rd and 4th generation father-and-son duo, Larry and Matt Rezin, own and operate more than 200 acres of cranberries, with occasional advice from retired 2nd generation grower David Rezin, who still lives on the marsh. The farm has been in the Ocean Spray Cooperative since 1954. Matt Rezin is the 4th generation to work on the farm, but a 6th generation cranberry grower, as members of his family helped to build several other cranberry marshes around the state. Matt shared, “It’s not a job when you love what you do for a living. It’s about teaching the next generation about the cranberry lifestyle.” Matt and his wife Jessica – who works on her family’s cranberry marsh, Cutler Cranberry Company – enjoy working and living on the marsh with their two children, Grace and Bruce.
