Warrens to Hold Fall Harvest Day Celebration
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 09/11/2019

The fourth annual Warrens Harvest Day Celebration will be held early next month to allow visitors an opportunity to tour a cranberry marsh, take a wagon ride to a pumpkin patch, pick apples at an orchard, and sample award-winning cranberry wines.

The October 5 event is hosted by the Wisconsin Cranberry Discovery Center, Wetherby Cranberry Company, DnA Vintners, Moseley Roadside Market, Rex Moseley Fruit and Vegetable Farm, St. Matthew Lutheran Church and the Warrens Area Business Association.

The Wetherby Cranberry Company is offering marsh tours for a nominal fee from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Third-generation cranberry grower Nodji Van Wychen and other members of her family will lead the tours.

"Guests board buses and we give them a tour of our marsh, explaining how cranberries are grown and harvested," Van Wychen said. "Visitors can also rent a pair of hip boots and wade out into the floating cranberries to have their photo taken. They just have to bring their camera. We'll supply the boots."

Moseley Roadside Market is offering free wagon rides to their pumpkin patch. Guests can take a ride out to our pumpkin patch to choose their own pumpkins and enjoy the fall colors on our farm.

At Rex Moseley's Fruit and Vegetable Farm, owner Rex Moseley invites parents to bring their children to make memories picking apples on his family's 140-year-old farm.

The Discovery Center will be open all day featuring interactive displays that showcase Wisconsin's cranberry growing heritage.
