Cranberry growers are facing an overproduction crisis

The price of cranberries has been sinking for more than five years due to overproduction. Families like the Rhodes, who own Edgewood Bogs in Massachusetts, are used to periodic cycles of oversupply and falling prices, but new bogs in western U.S. states in Canada are making farmers especially vulnerable. Paul Solman reports on how small growers are surviving in a changing cranberry market.
