Wetherby Cranberry Company and the Wisconsin Cranberry Discovery Center are hosting Cranberry Blossom Day on Saturday, June 27.

A free one-hour educational program at Wetherby Cranberry Company marsh begins at 9 a.m. Along with giving visitors a chance to see millions of cranberry blossoms up close, members of the Van Wychen family will explain how cranberries are grown and harvested.

To allow for social distancing, attendees will be divided into smaller groups. Some walking on sandy ground is involved.

The Wetherby Cranberry marsh is 4.5 miles east of Warrens on county Highway EW. For more information, call (608) 378-4813 or see their website at www.FreshCranberries.com.

Following the program at the marsh, participants are invited to stop at the Wisconsin Cranberry Discovery Center in downtown Warrens.

From 10 a.m. to noon, the Cranberry Discovery Center is offering free cranberry wine tasting. Visitors can also enjoy one of six flavors of cranberry ice cream made exclusively for the Discovery Center for just $1 per scoop. A 20 percent discount on all cranberry glass is being offered as well.

The Cranberry Museum will also be open for self-guided tours on Blossom Day. The museum features interactive displays and exhibits explaining the history of Wisconsin’s No. 1 fruit crop.
