Cranberry Bog Program

DER is helping to restore healthy wetlands on retired cranberry bogs.

Approximately 13,250 acres of cranberry farms exist in Massachusetts today. Falling prices and other factors are leading some farmers to consider other alternatives for their land, as well documented by the Massachusetts Legislature’s Cranberry Bog Revitalization Taskforce. For some, a ‘green exit strategy’ involving land conservation and habitat restoration makes sense. Over the past 10 years, working with local, state, and federal partners (such as the USDA Natural Resource Conservation Service), DER has helped to restore wetlands and streams across hundreds of acres of retired cranberry farmland.
