This is a must see attraction when you are on Cape Cod. Andrea and her husband Leo offer a wonderful, fun, fact-filled tour of their organic cranberry farm. As you ride the red "Bog Bus" you will realize how much work, dedication and love goes into growing these beautiful native berries. Every creature you meet on this farm has a... More

For everyone in the family including my skeptical, eye rolling husband. Leo and Andrea make the tour informative, fun and interesting. The gift shop with home made cranberry baked goods makes the tour delicious. For the environmentalists, the cranberries are grown organically! It's just a pleasant time with interesting people, friendly animals, and a peaceful environment.

We arrived at the Cranberry Bog early for our tour. We were greeted by two of the many family dogs and the iconic guys standing in Water with cranberries surrounding them. I now know how far from reality the Television version is. Andrea, our tour guide and the owner took us out through her bog in a converted small school... More

My husband and I and our 3 boys (ages 9,12,&15) found this the highlight of our trip to the Cape! Not for the prim and proper--- this is a real, working, organic cranberry farm that tells it like it is. Perfect, because of it! From the start, we were enthusiastically welcomed along with the rest of our group (total=15) by... More

We took our 13 and 9 y/o grandchildren on this tour. I went way beyond our expectations. A solid 90 minutes on interesting facts and education for young and old, and us too! Growing and harvesting Cranberries is not what you think from watching the commercials. Far from it. It is very hard work, complicated, wrought with problems endangering the... More

We love factory tours and seeing how things work. This tour was not a factory, but showed us the real world of cranberry farming. Our tour guide was the owner (along with her husband) of this business and she had a wonderfully direct speaking style and loads of knowledge about her subject. She took us through a year in the...

We really enjoyed the time we spent at the Cranberry Bog. We leaned a lot about how a true bog is run. This is an extremely low key, down to earth, real life tour. Not a lot goes on, but we enjoyed it nonetheless.

We knew NOTHING about cranberries. We thought 2 guys stood knee deep in water just like on TV. WRONG! Andrea drove us around on a cart and explained the seasons and techniques of organic cranberry farming. Along the way, we visited with newborn sheep, extremely large cows and other animals on the farm. My teens and I thoroughly enjoyed the... More

Leo gave us the tour because his wife who normally does them, had a wedding. It felt like a new friend just showing us around and teaching us about the industry. We learned so much in a warm friendly environment. And getting to hold a one day old Lamb was pretty amazing. My 13 and 16 year old thoroughly enjoyed... More
