If you've ever wanted to meet one of the comical Ocean Spray cranberry growers you see in the commercials, come out to the cranberry bog at the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival. You'll find them wading among the cranberries, and they're always ready to slosh over and chat.
Click the video accompanying this article to meet one of them. I chatted with third-generation grower Todd May, who hails from Canada and who took some time away from the busy cranberry harvest to visit the festival. He talked about what it's like to grow and harvest the cranberries and how he hopes his children will carry the business into a fourth generation.
You'll find the cranberry bog just past the fountain in Future World as you head toward World Showcase. If you'd like to see my adventures wading in it on the first day of the festival, jump to this article.
