Mayflower Cranberries is one of a growing number of New England cranberry growers that combine traditional agriculture with tourism.
At Mayflower, visitors not only learn about the growing and harvesting process, they are also invited to strap on some waders and pitch in.
Mayflower’s 23-plus acres of cranberry bogs include some with vines planted more than 120 years ago.
Visitors who arrive at harvest time can help rake and load berries, while those who come earlier can join in the planting.
Mayflower has offered the more hands-on visitor experience since it came under new ownership in 2009.
