Over EZ with Rick

Cranberry Bog

Jack and Dot are the kind of people KEZW listeners love, because they remind us of ourselves. They are the owners and operators of Flax Pond Cranberry Bog in Carver, Mass. and have been for over 40-years. They have 35-acres of cranberries that are just a few weeks from harvest so while the crop continues to ripen, they have time to sit in the gift shop at the bog and greet everyone. They will gladly talk to anyone about cranberry farming, how times have changed, the history of their land near Plymouth and offer words of wisdom you know are true. Their family is all around lending a hand, right down to a three-year old grandson who will likely be doing the dame work years from now. It's comforting in a world that changes just for the sake of change to meet people like Jack and Dot who remind us of the good old days. If you're ever in the neighborhood you should drop in for some fresh cranberry juice and a chat. You'll be glad you did.
