We traveled almost eight hours to check seeing a cranberry harvest off our bucket list. This tour was better than we could have ever expected. We saw pretty much every step of the harvest. Do this! You will be glad you did.

The tour was great! We watched a video, heard some history on Glacial Lake Cranberry farm, tried some cranberries, and got a tour of the cranberry bogs in a bus during harvest. The owners did the tour & were very knowledgeable.
