Cranberry Farms

Cranberry Hill in Plymouth
I plan to buy 10 lbs+ for canning and freezing

This was a wonderful experience! Christine and her husband run the operation out of their garage. She couldn't have been nicer! You have to call ahead and she takes cash and check. She told us that this was a low-yield season, but what they harvested were very high quality. Cranberry Hill is an organic cranberry farm. They flood the bog in April and May to wash out eggs of cranberry fruit worms. In growing and harvesting season they use bug lights to deter predators.
