Andrea, our tour guide and owner/operator, was fantastically personable! The farm was incredibly interesting, and my daughters learned so much from her tales. This was a must see according to my grandma, and we could not agree more. Post-tour, Andrea gave us some really terrific tips for dining and off-the-beaten path attractions- The Red Cottage and Brax Landing for outstanding... More

Really enjoyed the tour of the farm. We learned about the hard work and struggles required to build a successful cranberry bog. The tour was fun and packed full of information taking us through the requirements each month to produce a successful crop of cranberries.

OK, so we were lucky. Due to a broken pump, the wet harvest was brought forward to the very day we visited, so we did actually see guys wading amongst the cranberries. This wet harvest happens one day in the year, and they are not usually open, so DO NOT EXPECT TO SEE A CRANBERRY HARVEST WHEN YOU VISIT!!! However,... More

So, there are no guys standing in a bog in hip waders. Andrea busted that thought right off the bat but followed –up with an excellent tour. Very enlightening and at the same time amazing (actually mind boggling) to find out all that is involved in being an organic bog. We were so glad we stopped and took this tour!

It is a working organic cranberry bog. We took a little bus around and learned about what goes on every month in the life of a cranberry bog. It was so interesting and informative. The woman doing the tour was great! There are animals roaming free including 3 dogs that hopped on and off the bus as we went around... More

We were are always curious about the cranberry bogs of MA, and found this tour on Trip Advisor. What a fascinating and enjoyable tour. We learned more about cranberry farming than we expected. You travel on a small modern bus, and Andrea, the owner/guide was very interesting and personal in her explanations. There are numerous farm animals wandering or lying... More

My wife and I did the cranberry bog tour recently. The bog is an active organically certified family operation. The guide (the wife member of the family) was very outgoing, courteous, informative, and passionate about producing a quality product in an environmentally friendly manner. One caveat I do offer is this; it's probably not suited to children under six (or... More

Read some of the other reviews, especially the 5 star ones. We second them. All in favor? It's unanimous.

At $15pp it was well worth the money. Your was 1 1/2 hours given in small bus to max 18 people. Owner is your guide and she was so friendly and informative. Owners dogs like to tag along as well. She knows her stuff and her audience. Small gift shop with homemade food and crafts at the end. I learned... More

I learned so much about the cranberry growing process, that I did not understand. Not to mention for kids especially the opportunity to be on a working farm with all the animals. I will definitely try to go back again during a "wet harvest".
