Cranberries may have risen to stardom as ‘the’ must have with turkey served at Thanksgiving or Christmas Dinner BUT there’s so much more to this Taste of Nova Scotia natural beauty!
We’re pulling back the curtain on this superfood – it’s a traditional and locally grown berry around here, used for decades … even generations.
We’ll be tempting you with new recipes to try, exploring the healthy side of the cranberry and breaking down myths.
Think S’more Cranberry, Mulled Cranberry Sorbet, Ironworks and Nova 7 Cranberry Sangria and more.
RESERVE YOUR SEAT …

Visit Canada’s OLDEST Cranberry Bog: Indian Garden Farm
Make plans to visit Indian Garden Farm just outside of Bridgewater during our Cranberry Fest, they’ll be expecting to see you! While Glen and their team aren’t able to join us here at the beach this weekend (it’s a very busy time of the year!), they invite you to drop by their place – they can point out their cranberry bog AND you can pick up your supply of local cranberries. Harvesting since the 1800s, the Hebb cranberry marsh is the oldest continually operated commercial cranberry marsh in Canada. In 1998, the minister of agriculture at the time, Ed Lorraine, presented the Hebb family with a plaque of recognition.
Drop by and say “Hi” this weekend, or any day of the week – year round – located at 15401, Hwy 3 in Hebville
hhhmmm, it’s our Year of the Lobster too, wonder what happens when you mix lobster and cranberry …. what do you think?
The full schedule of events is being created, have an idea to add to the ‘menu’ of possibilities – let us know!
Stay tuned for a ‘berry great weekend!
