The Garretsons are a fifth-generation cranberry farming family. Gary and his wife, Joan, raised two daughters, Megan and Heather, on their 200+ acre farm. More than 35 years ago, Gary assumed responsibility for his grandfather’s farm, Slocum-Gibbs Cranberry Company, which was founded in 1919. Gary initially earned a business degree and spent time in manufacturing, but the cranberries called him back. Now, Megan and Heather’s children spend time on the farm learning about cranberries, as well as the land and wildlife that support the ecosystem.
