Fall Family Fun in New England: Be a Cranberry Farmer!

By September 6, 2019 March 2nd, 2022 No Comments

Looking for something new and fun this fall in New England? How about being a cranberry farmer for a day?
You’ll get to don a pair of overalls, grab a rake, and wade through the flooded cranberry bogs of rural Massachusetts, harvesting several tons of vitamin-rich red berries. This isn’t just for show—all locations are working farms and part of the Ocean Spray cooperative.

















This fun activity is so popular that experiences for this year are almost universally sold out! But you can get on waiting lists for next year.
Here’s where to sign up:

Tours (That include actual harvest experience)
Mayflower Cranberries in Plympton
Stone Bridge Farm in Acushnet

Flax Pond Farms in Carver
Chamberlain Farm in Fall River
A.D. Makepeace Farm in Wareham
