Have You Ever Wanted to Swim With Cranberries?
Fall is cranberry harvest time in Muskoka and we know the best cranberry farm where you can get up close and personal for cranberry pictures right IN the bog. Johnston’s Cranberry Marsh has been growing cranberries on their family farm since 1950. The cranberry bog plunge is one activity of many they offer. There is something to do at the cranberry bog in all seasons, by the way! In case you miss the plunge this year.
The Cranberry Plunge has become a popular activity with it’s stunning natural beauty and has become an all around must-do Muskoka experience. The event is family friendly with restrictions and guidelines below. It’s not for littles.
About Cranberry Growing
Cranberries grow in bogs, at harvest time, the bog is flooded and the cranberries float making the bog a sea of beautiful red. When you put on a stylish camo green chest wader overall, you can step out and into a sea of floating cranberries and play around making the best Fall photos of all your friends. Johnston’s Cranberry Marsh has 27 acres to pick and produces around 300,000-400,000 lbs of cranberries.
