Create a new tradition this year! Join us for one of these tours and you can dry harvest your own cranberries - then you can brag about it at the Thanksgiving table!  The A.D. Makepeace Company is offering two public pick-your-own cranberry tours this year, September 29 at 11am, October 17 at 1pm and October 30 at 1pm.
Our guided tours include a discussion of each growing season, touches upon the history of the cranberry industry and our company, allows for interaction with our farmers, includes the viewing of our wet harvest cranberry operation, and time for guests to dry harvest their own cranberries. The tour lasts approximately two hours. Very little walking is required.
Guests will be able to dry harvest fresh cranberries by hand during the tour.  Guests are allowed to keep the berries they harvest during the allotted harvest portion of the tour (approximately 30 minutes).  Please note, this is a non-water harvest tour, no waders are required, appropriate dress and footwear required.  Be prepared for possible wet or muddy conditions.  Tours are held rain or shine but severe weather may postpone or cancel a tour.  Guests will be transported by bus to the cranberry bog areas.  Be sure to allow for additional time for shopping and lunch at Makepeace Farms, and you can even rent a kayak while you are here!
Fees Admission $25 per person. Fee includes one bag of pick-your-own cranberries.
Advance registration is highly recommended for all tours.  Seating is limited and offered on a first-come first-serve basis.
