from the flooded field on the Fraser River

UPDATE 2015: due to storm damage Meadows Maze Farm is not open this year - but the berries are still there!) For family fun next year there will be displays about cranberry farming and cranberry tasting.  You can slip on gumboots and get right into the flooded berry field or take a wagon tour of the field. There's a corn maze with a different design every year, a store and lots of fun things to see and do. 

The cranberry harvest happens on a different 
day each year -- usually mid to late October.
