2013 Cranberry Field Day
Approximately two hundred growers, researchers, suppliers and guests attended the 2013 Cranberry
Field Day at Creekside Cranberries Ltd. in Langley, home of Jack and Joanne DeWit and Family.
The day featured researchers providing information on current projects and results and allied trade
representatives displayed and were on-hand to talk about the newest and latest equipment, products and
supplies for the cranberry industry. As well, growers displayed some of their own equipment they have
found to be very useful.
Lunch time addresses featured Councillor Bev Dornan, Township of Langley, Louis Michel Larocque,
President, APCQ (Quebec Cranberry Growers Association) and Scott Soares, Executive DIrector with the
US Cranberry Marketing Committee.
After lunch there was an opportunity to view the cranberry bogs.
The Planning Committee led by Jack DeWit and Bob Mitchell did a great job of organizing an enjoyable
and informative day. Cranberry Field Days are held every other year - the next one will be planned for the
Summer of 2015. If you'd like to see images of the 2011 Cranberry Field Day click here.
A big THANK YOU to the DeWits, to the sponsors and especially to the growers.
