Annual Cranberry Blossom Day Set for June 25
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 06/13/2011
The Cranberry Discovery Center and Wetherby Cranberry Company are teaming up to hold the third annual Cranberry Blossom Day later this month. The festivities are scheduled for June 25 at the Wetherby marsh near Warrens.
Organizers say tours will be held from 9 a.m. to noon, offering visitors an up-close look at cranberry vines in bloom. Third-generation cranberry grower Nodji Van Wychen will be on hand to answer questions about her family's cranberry operation.
After touring the marsh, visitors can learn more about Wisconsin top fruit crop at the Cranberry Discovery Center. As part of the festivities, the Center will offer cranberry wine tasting and gourmet cranberry food sampling that day. And there will also be cranberry recipe demonstrations.
Wisconsin Honey Queen Danielle Dale and the Warrens Cranberry Festival Royalty are among the special guests who will be attending Cranberry Blossom Day.
The Wetherby marsh is 4.5 miles east of Warrens on county Highway EW. For more information, call 608-378-4878.
