The world's largest cranberry grower offering unique agricultural experiences to groups and educational institutions
With more than 400 growers producing nearly 25 percent of the nation's cranberry supply, cranberries are the number one food crop in Massachusetts. The A.D. Makepeace Company, based in Town of Wareham, is one of the world's largest cranberry growers and the largest private property owner in Massachusetts. Today, the company farms some 1,750 acres of bog in the Plymouth County towns of Carver, Middleborough, Plymouth, Rochester and Wareham, and offers public, group and private cranberry bog tours during both the blossom season in the spring and the cranberry harvest season in the fall.
