“Authentic and interesting farm visit”

Mayflower Cranberries
Ranked #2 of 2 things to do in Plympton
Attraction details
Reviewed 28 June 2018 via mobile

Fantastic one on one experience with Jeff, who has become a farmer later in life. Our group loved the personal experience and learned much about farming cranberries. He also offers the chance for people to help bring in the harvest for a nominal charge. You can put on waders and push cranberries with him in the fall. Delightful decorations in barn and reasonably priced gift items too.

WOW! I still rave about the "Be The Grower" experience they offer! So much fun and not easy work harvesting cranberries but to be able to put on waders, get in the middle of a flooded bog and help harvest cranberries (and sample the fresh berries) was exactly what I imagined it would be and checked off a longtime bucket list item of mine! The staff of the cranberry farm is top-notch and made the experience engaging and informative. My fellow growers were a hoot and we all worked together to full one huge truck full of cranberries and watch it roll out headed straight to Ocean Spray!

If it was possible to give such a rating this place well deserves that score. Although I did not put on waders and be part of the "Be A Grower" experience, just taking the tour, listening to owner Jeff talk about Ocean Spray as well as the cranberry growing and harvesting process, was excellent. Jeff was informative and he and his staff were so friendly. Personally I have completed over 150 reviews for Trip Advisor and this is one of the top ten places I have ever reviewed. Check out the website to learn more about the two choices: actually helping with the harvesting or being an observer. Highly recommend this experience.

We had the best time at "Be The Grower" experience, actually and physically harvesting cranberries, mind you we are all in our 70's, but with the help of Jeff's crew who were such young gentlemen, polite and so helpful with helping us put on our waders and getting into the bog to harvest, we were confident and put at ease with their guidance and the cranberries we tasted in the bog were delicious. Thank you Jeff Lafleur for a great experience and organization, loved it.

We walked right out to the bog which was being wet harvested. The berries had already been beaten off the vines and "corralled". Some on our tour put on waders and actually helped in the process. I would do that next time!
