Cranberry Harvest Tour

QuietCranberriesAtHarvestThank you to everyone who came out and visited with us for the 2016 Cranberry Harvest Tour Season!  We look forward to 2017!

Our flagship tour! Guided by 5th generation cranberry grower, Brenda Conner.

Come out and see for yourself what happens on a working cranberry farm! Start in our new Heritage Hall, where 5th generation cranberry grower, Brenda Conner will present “Cranberries, NJ & You.” Learn about the native agriculture difference and how the cranberry industry preserved the Pine Barrens, the largest wilderness area between Boston and Richmond. In about 45 minutes Brenda will cover a lot of local history and cranberry culture through personal stories and entertaining, but little-known facts. (Brenda is always happy to answer questions too, so don’t be shy!)

Next, it is out to the bogs on our specially designed bus. Every seat is a window seat with panoramic views. Unlike demonstration farms, your experience will take you right into the heart of a working cranberry farm. See the crews picking and gathering the fruit as they work in a sea of floating cranberries. Brenda will narrate and explain everything that is happening as the crew works to water harvest the cranberries … it’s even better than the two guys from the commercials!

And a trip to the farm just wouldn’t be complete without the opportunity to eat some cranberries!! Enjoy a cooking demonstration that will include family recipes as well as those from Brenda’s own kitchen. Learn about the health benefits as you get to see and taste cranberries prepared in a variety of ways. Throughout the presentation lots of easy serving and gifting ideas will be shared and all participants get a free recipe booklet.

Expect to spend approximately 3 hours experiencing everything cranberry!

Reservations required.
