Cranberry Harvest Festival

Makepeace Farms in Wareham hosted the 13th annual Cranberry Harvest Festival on October 8 and 9.  I met up with Sheila and her son and we had a good time walking around, eating free samples and fresh apple cider donuts.  





They do such a nice job of making the place fun for everyone and very picturesque. 



Canoes and swan or duck paddleboats were available to rent.

Lots of cranberries for sale!

Here's a bike where you have to work for your smoothie drink!


Small playground for the kids.




Did you know that Ocean Spray was based here?  

I did a double take cause I thought the Ocean Spray guys were really looking out the window!

Up next is the bog harvest.

    1. It's worth it. I'm glad I went and hope to go next year. But it was soooooo crowded. I couldn't believe so many people showed up. Of course the following day was a torrential rainstorm so that's probably why.

    1. It's pretty neat to see it all. The next set of pics are of the harvest itself. So many people from different states and countries have no idea how cranberries are grown. My friends in California thought they grew on trees or bushes.
