Cranberry Facts

FFA Logo

The Pittsville FFA/FFA Alumni (click the FFA logo to go to the FFA official site) are giving cranberry tours to help pay for student scholarships, trips and many more members related activities.  This two hour cranberry tour takes place just east of Pittsville in the heart of central Wisconsin Cranberry Country.  Pittsville FFA Members and students, who are part of the only Cranberry Science Class taught in the nation, will give this all-inclusive tour. 

 The tour will meet at the Pittsville School Auditorium located on Elementary Avenue just off First Avenue in Pittsville at 9:15 AM, with an introductory video for early arrivals.  The tour includes the following:  touring a current marsh under construction, new beds not yet in production, producing beds with the tourists given the opportunity to pick fresh fruit from the vine, as well as observing the harvesting, testing, cleaning and freezing of the berries.

 Finally, you will return to the school to enjoy a tasty cranberry based lunch that includes cranberry treats made by our Foods Class at Pittsville High School . The charge for the tour is $20 dollars per person, with discounts for large groups.  School tours are also available at $3 per student, which includes a cranberry treat, juice, and fresh cranberries  for each student to take home.  Reservations are a must to let the FFA know how many are coming.  Please call 715-884-6412. The Splash of RED Cranberry Tour for 2009 will run from 9:30AM-12:00 Noon with lunch served at 11:30 AM.

As part of his "Capital for the Day" program on November 2, 2005, Governor Doyle made a stop in Pittsville to tour a cranberry bog, observe a cranberry harvest, and visit a cranberry cleaning station with Pittsville FFA students. After his tour Governor Doyle sent this message:

"To Pittsville High School Students,  Thanks for the great cranberry tour.  It was enjoyable and educational."

- Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle
