Sept 25 – Cranberry Harvest Muskoka Lakes Cranberry Farm

We will meet at the Muskoka Lakes Cranberry Farm & Winery at 9:00 AM and stay until 1:00 PM, or longer if you wish. There are many choices to paint as this is a working farm. The annual cranberry harvest will just be starting if the berries do their thing. The location offers many values of intense colour. Capture the beauty of the cranberries as they float up to the surface of the flooded bogs.

SPECIAL NOTE: All BPAG artists joining us on this date will need to purchase a $5 Trail pass upon arrival to access the trails. Starting mid-September the farm gets busy with tours and visitors.

GETTING THERE: From Muskoka Road Hwy #169, turn onto Medora Road (a left turn from Bala, a right turn from Port Carling). Drive 1.5km then turn onto Cranberry Road – follow signs to Johnston’s Cranberry Marsh. It is well marked. Meet under the White Tent beside the parked Tour Wagon. Look for BPAG sign.

PARKING: Park in the visitor lot for trail pass holders on the left. There are many portable washrooms for visitors.

WHAT TO BRING: Dress for fall weather whatever that may be. This outing may be a bit longer as there are many things that may inspire you. There is a store and cafe that will be open for snacks and refreshments and sitting on the patio. Suggested palette: Many shades of red, orange, and yellow – from ochre to bismuth.
