Organic Cranberry Production
Massachusetts has a rich history of cranberry cultivation and organic cranberries are a niche crop with opportunities for direct sales of both fresh and frozen fruit. Come meet Dom Fernandes, of Fresh Meadows Farm, who has been growing certified organic cranberries for over 10 years. Learn about how they transitioned almost a third of their farm into organic production.  Dom will lead a tour of one of Fresh Meadow Farms organic cranberry bogs and discuss the variety of cultivation techniques they use and the specific cultivars they find to work well in organic production. Following the tour, we convene in the sorting facility to learn about handling the crop after harvest. Dom will spend time elaborating and answering questions about his experiences transitioning from conventional to organic production and opportunities in the organic market.
