Harvest time

Category: Sense of Place

During the annual cranberry harvest the cranberry bogs are flooded bringing the bright red berries to the surface. Once at the surface farm workers can wrangle them into one corner of the bog where they are sucked up into trucks and separated from the water and washed before shipping to packing centers. The annual cranberry harvest is a time for the entire community to come out and enjoy live music, homemade jams and cranberry juices as well as supporting the conservation society that protects the Nantucket Island land trust witch keeps the bogs from being developed

Location: Nantucket Massachusetts USA
