History of the Farm

P. J. Cranberries was started in 1990 on 10.5 acres of land. It is situated inside the East Sandwich coastal barrier beach on the edge of a large fresh water marsh system. The first bog of Early Black variety cranberries was partially renovated and replanted. In 1994 the second bog of Howe cranberries was planted, followed by the Stevens bog in 1998. The traditional varieties are dry harvested, sorted, packaged, and sold to farm stands, grocery stores, specialty stores, food processors, jam and pie companies, breweries, and distilleries. These places respect and support locally grown food.

The cranberry farm is run by Peter J. Hanlon and his two sons, Patrick and Pete. Every decision made regarding the growing of cranberries is made with the consideration to the natural surrounding environment. We have a functioning osprey pole next to Bog #3 and nesting pairs have raised young there since 2006.
