It’s the most wonderful time of the year – the cranberry harvest season is upon us!
Interested in learning more about this photogenic, iconic display throughout Southeastern Massachusetts? We recommend starting with our friends at the Cape Cod Cranberry Growers’ Association. Their website offers information on how cranberries grow, where to catch a bog tour, and more.
Want to include a little shopping in your visit? Stop by Makepeace Farms for souvenirs of Cranberry Country, including fresh cranberries when available. The shop also offers some of the most delicious sandwiches and fresh baked treats!
For those who prefer a do-it-yourself approach and want to explore the area on their own, the CCCGA offers a map which will help you plan a self-guided tour. Our region’s harvest typically runs from mid-September through early November, and most growers don’t mind you watching the activity if you can park safely off the road and out of the way of truck traffic.
