Cape Cod Annie’s Crannies Dennis, MA

Cranberry cultivation had its beginning on Cape Cod when in 1816, Henry Hall, a resident of Dennis village, discovered that wild cranberry plants covered by winter’s wind blown sand produced bigger and more plentiful berries. The practice of covering cranberry bogs with sand soon caught on. Early cranberry harvesting was done by hand using scoops.

I grew up right down the street from this cranberry bog in Dennis village. When I was a kid it was abandoned and overgrown, as were many of the old bogs in the area. Some time ago the bog was cleared and is now run by the granddaughter of the former owner.

Located in historic Dennis, Cape Cod MA birthplace of the cultivated cranberry! ...Dennis, Massachusetts was not only the birthplace of the cultivated cranberry, but to the invention and standardization of harvesting, packaging, and shipping equipment and practices…

I was there today and bought a huge bag of cranberries.  We were looking for some and had no clue where any were available.  It was super to see the signs on the road.  We had stopped at a gift shop in Brewster and they pointed us in your direction but didn’t know your name.  You should advertise at the cute little shops ,  I don’t know the names only that there is a coffee shop and a few others there. 
The woman sorting the berries was wonderul.  She explained what she was doing to my mom and I .  Showed us the sorting equipment and was very helpful
thankyou to her.  we enjoyed it greatly.
Again,  it was fabulous.  Dawn L. White
