LAKE NOKOMIS CRANBERRY HARVEST TOURS

October 12, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 8:00am on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until October 19, 2019

Harvest usually takes place mid-September to mid-October.  It begins by partially flooding the beds with water that is brought in by a series of pumps and culverts.  A tractor and rack go through the beds to knock the berries off the vines.  The beds are then fully flooded, allowing the berries to float on the surface of the water.  Berries are then corralled to one end of the bed with a boom and siphoned off using a berry pump.  The berry pump separates most of the debris from the cranberries and the debris is later sold as compost.  Want to see this process in person?  Stop by and take one of our free harvest tours.

Monday – Friday:  10:30 am,  12:30 pm,  2:30 pm
