Looking for a great fall getaway? Marsh tours are the perfect way to experience Wisconsin’s Cranberry Country. There are several marshes that offer public tours in both central and northern Wisconsin.
Remember, cranberry marshes are working farms – please respect private property by only visiting marshes that are open to the public.
CENTRAL WISCONSIN CRANBERRY MARSH TOURS
Wetherby Cranberry Company (Warrens)
Participate in Wetherby Cranberry Company’s Public Harvest Day:
Private tours are available for a fee:
Rooted in Red (Wisconsin Rapids)
Come down to our century old family run cranberry farm and enjoy some live music, tasty food from local food trucks and signature cocktails. The whole family is invited!
Take a tour of our family’s century old cranberry farm where you’ll learn about the cranberry growing process and some history of the farm. Then, like the guys on the Ocean Spray commercial, we’ll get you dressed in authentic waiters and get your photo in the middle of the cranberry bog!
We will be open on Saturdays in the summer, and extended hours in October for harvest tours.
