P.J. Cranberries was started in 1990 on 10.5 acres of land situated inside the coastal barrier beach on the edge of a large fresh water marsh system. The first bog of the Early Black cranberry variety was partially renovated and replanted. In 1994 the second bog was constructed and planted followed by the Stevens bog in 1998. The traditional varieties are dry harvested , sorted, packaged and then sold to businesses which support locally grown food. The cranberry farm is run by Peter J. Hanlon and his two sons, Patrick and Pete. Every decision made regarding the growing of cranberries is made with consideration to the natural surrounding environment.
