Traditionally Grown Cranberries from Downeast Maine


Have you ever wanted to don a pair of waders and head into the waters for a cranberry harvest while cranberries bob and float all around you? Have you ever wondered what it takes to be a cranberry farmer during the harvest? If so, we have a unique opportunity for actually help in our water harvest in October 2015 (we usually start the weekend after Columbus Day)

There are a limited amount of opening for participants, who will put on a pair of waders, grab a pusher, and head into the cold waters of cranberry harvesting! You will help corral (“boom”) cranberries and get them pumped into the tractor trailer trucks to the processor.

Each participant will get a 3-hour experience of water harvesting along with:

  • 10# box of fresh (dry harvested) cranberries to bring home

  • Lunch of lobster roll, cup of chowder, and drink

  • use of a pair of waders and gloves

  • newly found muscles and exercise

Openings are limited and $75 per person (or $125 per couple). Deadline for signup is June 30, 2015.

Payment can be made via PayPal on our Products page.
