Cranberries are a beloved tradition here in New England. While some may think of cranberries as just a Thanksgiving delicacy, others enjoy them in many types of dishes year-round, especially in Massachusetts. It may come as no surprise that the Bay State produces one third of the cranberries grown in the United States. Now you can have the opportunity to see how these scarlet gems are grown—right here in Harwich on beautiful Cape Cod!
