Cranberries: the folks around Warren, Wisconsin, Cranberry Museum say their state is the largest cranberry producing state in the US.
Idaho: I thought they were growing french fries there.

Were Dexter shoes sold that far west? When they were actually made in Maine they were all I bought.

They wouldn't ship spuds or cranberries from Maine to the west coast as Washington and Idaho are spud country, and Washington and Oregon grow cranberries (Ocean Spray). But B&M beans are THE best and certainly were shipped to the west!
Paper not likely as Washington had gobs of paper mills. But I have been looking at how to justify a BAR reefer and some BM cars to appear on my Seattle layout and any more ideas would be welcome. All I can think of for a BAR reefer is fresh lobster? I
like the idea of the BM car carrying B&M beans to some grocery distributors, too.
