Cranberry Harvest and Whitesbog Bus Tour
October 25 @ 7:15 am - 4:30 pm EDT
Join us at 7:15 am for a leisurely drive through the rich farmlands of southern New Jersey to our destination at Brown’s Mill, New Jersey to learn the history of cranberry growing and witness the actual harvesting of cranberries. Included in our visit will be a demonstration of the cooking uses of cranberries. After our cranberry tour, we will have a picnic lunch and then be off to Whitesbog for a visit to the historic village where Highbush blueberries were first selected and grown. We will also tour a classic Pine Barrens bog-no rubber boots required. The bus will return about 4:30pm.
