Working, old style, Cranberry farm, just a short drive from Plymouth Town. In business since the 1890's, much of the old equipment is still in use today and you are shown the equipment in use. Well worth a visit to see a large Cranberry bog,...More

This is one of the few cranberry farms that offer a tour without reservations and we loved it. Very informal, but packed with information and we actually got to see dry harvesting of the cranberries. Highly recommend.

Great cranberry learning experience and tour. The owners are lovely, gracious people who provide a wonderful visit. There is something for everyone in their gift shop. Oh, and it's Chritmas tree farm too! Well worth a visit.

I was visiting a friend in Massachusetts and she thought of going here. It's a little hard to find (our gps took us to a deadend road at first, but we eventually figured it out after calling the farm for help) - but, it's well...More

I don't know about September. We went in October. The farm shop, which has demos, is open every day as I recall. The tours are both self directed and with a "guide" and were all walking tours. This bog does "dry" harvest... More
