2021 Cranberry Harvest Tours & Wellness outings

With the cancellation of the 2021 Nantucket Cranberry Festival, we are bringing back our guided Cranberry Harvest Tours. These tours allow participants to celebrate and see the living history of Cranberry growing at the Milestone Cranberry Bog on Nantucket. Join Neil Foley & Nick Larrabee as they walk participants through the bogs at harvest to talk about the process of cultivating this crop 30 miles out to sea, the challenges of growing cranberries in a changing climate, and the innovation and history behind America’s Founding Fruit.

Please note that our Cranberry Harvest Tours are free and open to all members of the community. If you would like to make a contribution to NCF and our mission to permanently conserve and protect the island’s rare resources and special habitats, you may call us at 508- 228-2884 or make an online donation here.
