Cranberry History Lesson: The Kids Using the 1920’s Hand Separator

We had the loveliest of days today. We went out for lunch, then headed to a local farm to see some fall displays, then over to my dad’s cranberry bogs to watch the harvest. The kids got a special treat today when Grandpa let them use the 1920’s Cranberry separator. Of course there are modern methods for this now, but years ago the bad berries were separated by hand. I was so thankful that I  had my handy dandy iPod touch so that I could video this moment. It is a little grainy…but is a neat to see.

 

 

I’ve put together a Cranberry Mini Unit Study here.
