Cranberry Bog Tours
Cape Cod is home to numerous cranberry bogs and if you're curious about how the berries are harvested, make sure to add a bog tour to your vacation agenda.
Leo and Andrea Cakounes offer the tours of the Cape's largest organic cranberry farm from March through December each year, but their busiest time is in September and October. After each tour, which goes over the equipment needed to harvest and grow the berries, guests are invited to visit the farm's gift shop and farmstand (which sells the farm's very own cranberry sauce!). Tours are $15 for adults and children. If you're planning to schedule a tour with Cranberry Bog Tours, call 508-432-0790 to register.

Makepeace Company in Wareham for tours on select dates: Saturday, Oct. 28, 2019, Saturday, Oct. 19, 2019, and Wednesday, October 23, 2019.

Makepeace also offers a Bog to Table Dinner, which could be a fun addition to your dining plans. Admission to the tour is $18 per person. Children 5 and under, as well as military personnel (active or veteran), are free.
