At the farm

If your path brings you near Lunenburg, NS, drop in for a visit! Things are starting to get busy, as the cranberries are ripening a bit early this year. Our Bog Store is open Monday to Saturday, from 8AM to 4PM. You can buy any of the products we make at the farm, see berries in the fields, and ask all the questions you ever wanted answered about cranberries.

Cranberry Harvest season is here! If you would like to see fields flooded and harvest in action, come on Saturday, October 26. If that is not a good day for you, we will be continuing for the next two weeks, depending on the weather. Give us a call or an email to confirm (902.634.4435 #202, or evelyn@cranberryfarm.ca)

Normally, our season begins with Open Farm Day on Sunday, September 15. The farm is open that day from 10AM to 4PM for free guided walking tours, educational displays, and plenty of complimentary cranberry refreshments. You can come see how cranberries are grown, and tour inside our processing facility, too.

Our Cranberry U-Pick — the first and only one in Nova Scotia! — opens on October 1  and will be open from 11AM to 4PM Monday — Saturday through October, weather permitting. Satisfaction is guaranteed –we grow “Stevens” cranberries, the largest, highest yielding variety around, so you can fill a 4 lb pail in under 45 minutes without even moving.

The u-pick price is $1.50/lb, or $6 for a 4 lb pail. Berry pails are available at the farm. Wear rugged shoes or boots — the field may have muddy spots.
