Carrie Weston and her family won an exclusive experience at the Ocean Spray cranberry bog at Patriot Place through the Partners in Patriotism newsletter’s quarterly sweepstakes.

Carrie and Liam Weston have been taking their three children to the Ocean Spray cranberry bog and nature trail behind Bass Pro Shops at Patriot Place since 2011, but their visit on Oct. 22 was unlike any other.

The Foxborough family won an opportunity through the most recent issue of the Kraft Group’s quarterly newsletter, “Partners in Patriotism,” to join Ocean Spray farmers at the bog and try their hands at harvesting the cranberries.

“We were so excited when the Kraft Group informed us that we won this opportunity,” Carrie said. “We all loved putting on the Ocean Spray waders and exploring the bog filled with cranberries.”

The Westons learned about the cranberry harvesting process from Ocean Spray farmers before entering the bog with wooden scoops to collect the berries.

“Rarely do you get to see the unique cranberry harvesting process up close,” Carrie said. “Connecting with nature in a simple way is a great lesson for us and our kids and we are so grateful for this experience.”

The Westons’ experience at the bog kicked off a day of fall fun in Foxborough as Patriot Place held its seventh annual Fall Harvest Celebration, which offered guests a chance to watch Ocean Spray farmers harvest the 7,500 pounds of cranberries that were in the bog and enjoy free family activities like hay rides and pumpkin painting.
