Amil’s Inn Bed and Breakfast has been blessed over the years with many friendships. Many of these friendships began around Wisconsin’s state fruit the cranberry. As the 41st Warrens Cranberry Festival becomes past history, we are reminded of one of those special friendships with Nodji and Jim Van Wychen of the Wetherby Cranberry Company of Warrens, Wisconsin.
They not only supply the fresh cranberries that Anita uses in her scones, muffins and many other special treats that are made fresh from scratch for our guests but they also supply some extra special cranberry touches such as vines that are used for table and room decorations. We are so grateful for their friendship.
For those who would like to learn more about cranberries, the cranberry industry and be able to purchase some fresh cranberries, the Wetherby Cranberry Company of Warrens, Wisconsin host a Public Harvest Day the first Saturday in October each year from 9:00-11:00 AM. This year the date is Saturday, October 5, 2013. The Public Harvest Day is free to all who attend and no reservations are needed. For more information and directions to the marsh or to order fresh cranberries if you are unable to attend the Public Harvest day visit www.freshcranberries.com.
Also it is never too early to start planning for the 42nd Annual Warrens Cranberry Festival which is scheduled for September 26- 28, 2014. Visit www.cranfest.com for more information.
