The Cranberry Harvest Celebration at the farms of AD Makepeace has been going for 10 years. People gather to watch workers harvest cranberries from flooded bogs. Speaking with the workers, I learned a couple interesting facts: the cranberry plants in bogs have very high yield, but their product goes only to processed foods, not the bags of fresh cranberries you see in a grocery store; the plants on a cranberry farm might be as old as 100 years; and cranberries straight from a bog taste pretty good.
