LIFE on the BOG
Renovating Cranberry Bogs
Many of the A.D. Makepeace Company cranberry bog areas are decades old and still produce, year after year. As you might imagine, the way a bog was constructed before heavy equipment and other modern conveniences, was quite different than today.
Cranberry bog renovation is a common practice in Massachusetts as well as other growing regions. The A.D. Makepeace Company has a strong tradition of renovating older cranberry bogs showing not only a commitment to the industry but also a commitment to improving bog efficiencies. When an older cranberry bog is renovated a more level, more water-efficient, and higher-yielding bog is typically created within the same footprint of the previous bog.
Above is an image of the recent planting of a newly renovated cranberry bog in Carver. It will take approximately three years from the time of this investment to see the first full harvest.
