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!).
