Fresh Meadows Farm is one of many bogs close to Boston that offer a glimpse into the growing process for the berry whose juice is our state beverage. The harvest typically stretches from late September to early November and is highly variable depending on the weather. It’s easy to arrange a trip to a bog and a bounty of fresh-picked cranberries, and farmers are frequently eager to share the fruits of their labors.
