At Terra Beata Cranberry Farm, Heckman’s Island near Lunenburg, cranberries are grown in a natural peat bog. Harvesting begins after Thanksgiving and runs through October. The fruit is now a deep red colour and ready to be picked. The fields are flooded and we can watch the harvesting process. The owners of the property, Evelyn and David Ernst, will guide us through the farm.
