Default Any farmers/agriculture guys here?

Found this antique tool in a garage and have no idea what it is. Looks like a scoop of some sort. Any help here would be appreciated. Also a value?

Many thanks

I believe it is a scoop for harvesting cranberries . . . from a bog.

I believe that is for harvesting berries off of bushes (blueberries etc.)

It's commonly called a cranberry rake.

Very common in my boggy part of Mass. in the old days.
The very definition of stoop labor.
Real antiques like yours are worth quite a bit.
